The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) and Broken Arrow Police Department have dismantled a large methamphetamine trafficking organization as part of a six-month cooperative investigation. OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward says the case was initiated in July of 2021 after receiving information about individuals moving large quantities of meth into Tulsa, Broken Arrow and Sapulpa.
“During the investigation, OBN Agents and Broken Arrow officers uncovered evidence that this organization was transporting anywhere from 50 to 100 pounds of meth into the Tulsa area from Anaheim, California on a monthly basis,” Woodward said. He identified person orchestrating these shipments as Clint Raymond, of Tulsa.
On Thursday, December 16th, OBN and Broken Arrow officers served 25 Arrest Warrants throughout the Tulsa area for individuals tied to the investigation, including the main target, Clint Raymond Johnson (DOB 08-18-1989). A total of 25 pounds of meth was seized, along with several weapons during the course of the investigation.
OBN Director Donnie Anderson said he was “extremely proud” of the diligence and determination put forth by both the agents and their partners in Broken Arrow.
“They worked nights, weekends, and over the Thanksgiving holiday to secure the evidence and ensure a solid prosecution for those responsible for putting this poison onto our streets,” Anderson said.
The defendants face a variety of charges, including Distribution and Trafficking of Methamphetamine. The Tulsa Police Department and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol assisted OBN and Broken Arrow Police with vital components during the investigation.
