The Osage County Sheriff’s Office, along with several other law enforcement agencies, conducted a major drug bust on Wednesday morning.  Deputies referred to the operation as the largest in Osage County history.

In all, 44 arrest warrants were issued, all of which are linked to the use, distribution, or trafficking of marijuana into Osage County. 

Those arrested ranged from buyers to dealers. Charges were brought in Osage County but affidavits show that marijuana was sent through the U.S. Post Office so there will likely be federal charges filed.

Law enforcement agencies involved in Wednesday’s arrests include the Pawhuska Police Department, the Osage County Sheriff’s Office, Osage Nation and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

A dozen of those arrested were arraigned on felony conspiracy and computer charges.

Bond was set for those arraigned at $10,000.
