PURCELL, Okla. Authorities unveil a massive crime ring of drugs, guns and convicted felons.
They were tipped off when they recovered a stolen truck.
One clue lead to another, and before detectives knew it, they were connecting dots in a large multi-county drug and crime ring.
“We do not want these people to have firearms, because they’re dealing in meth or other drugs, and they’re dealing in stolen firearms,” McClain County Detective Dana Guthrie said. “That’s a bad combination.”
There are countless combos like this that make up a network of drugs, guns and convicted felons stretching across Canadian, Cleveland, McClain, Grady, Garvin and Oklahoma Counties.
Detectives say it all started with a stolen truck, and pieces of a dangerous puzzle began coming together.
“That’s when it started evolving,” said Guthrie.
The truck lead to a house in Purcell.
