OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Oklahoma City say that 35 people have been indicted as part of a drug-trafficking conspiracy coordinated by imprisoned gang leaders using contraband cellphones.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Downing said in a statement on Friday that the indictments resulted from a year-long investigation of activities of the Southside Locos Gang and some of its imprisoned leaders. Downing said that law enforcement seized more than 111 pounds of methamphetamine, 8 pounds of heroin, 34 firearms, and $200,000 in currency during the investigation.
