TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma’s attorney general has filed drug trafficking and weapons charges against two people accused of possessing several pounds of illegal drugs and assault-style weapons.

Attorney General Mike Hunter says seven counts were filed Tuesday against 29-year-old James Mitchell and 36-year-old Tynisa Williams, including aggravated trafficking of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Tulsa County court records don’t indicate whether they are represented by an attorney.

Mitchell and Williams were arrested after investigators found nearly two pounds of methamphetamine, three pounds of ecstasy and 10 guns at their Tulsa residence earlier this month. Hunter says officials also seized nearly four pounds of marijuana, digital scales and other paraphernalia.

A grant from Hunter’s office designed to reduce violent crime paid for the investigation.
