OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A large-scale, Mexican-sourced methamphetamine manufacturing operation in Oklahoma City has been shut down.

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward says Homeland Security Investigations and bureau agents found 15.3 pounds of crystal meth during a traffic stop Jan 8.

A search warrant was executed on a nearby home, where agents discovered a large-scale meth manufacturing operation. Woodward says agents found several more pounds of crystal meth and canisters containing multiple pounds of liquid meth that was in the process of being converted.

The investigation netted 121 pounds of meth in either crystal or liquid form with an approximate street value of $1.5 million.

Woodward says three people living in the country illegally have been arrested in the case. He says more arrests are possible as the investigation continues.
