The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Homeland Security Investigations conducted an investigation into the Mexican-sourced meth operation.

Agents made a traffic stop on Jan. 8 near Southwest 25th and Portland Avenue in Oklahoma City. Officials said a probable cause search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 15.3 pounds of crystal meth.

As a result of the traffic stop, a search warrant was then conducted at 2921 Southwest 39th Terrace, where agents said they found a large-scale meth operation.

Agents said they found 121 pounds of meth, in either crystal or liquid form, with an approximate street value of $1.5 million.

“Rather than cooking crystal meth in Mexico and smuggling the finished product across the border, we are seeing a trend by the cartels to ship the liquid meth in vehicle gas tanks, car batteries and windshield wiper fluid compartments into the U.S., where it is chemically converted into crystal meth or ‘ice’ once it reaches the city or state of distribution,” said Mark Woodward, OBN spokesman.

Three people were arrested in connection with the case, Felipe De Jesus Sanchez Martinez, Marisol Valdez Nava and Luis Carlos Castaneda Espinoza. Police said all three are illegal immigrants from Mexico. More
