Investigation by Tulsa Police Department facilitated by Safe Oklahoma Grant
TULSA – Attorney General Mike Hunter today announced his office has filed drug trafficking and other related charges on two Tulsans after officers with the Tulsa Police Department searched a southeast Tulsa residence.
Officers found James Mitchell and Tynisa Williams in possession of nearly two pounds of methamphetamine, three pounds of ecstasy and 10 guns, including assault-style weapons, during the execution of a recent search warrant.
The investigation by the Tulsa Police Department was conducted by officers working overtime and paid for by the attorney general’s annual Safe Oklahoma Grant disbursement.
Attorney General Hunter said the annual grant is helping to cut down on violent crime in the state.
“Drug dealers need to be held accountable,” Attorney General Hunter said. “Thanks to this annual grant, combined with proper allocation and strategy, as we consistently see from the Tulsa Police Department, we will remain dedicated to deploying these resources to cut down on violent crime statewide. I applaud officials with the Tulsa Police Department, led by Chief Chuck Jordan, for the successful initiatives they have championed with these funds.”
Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said a portion of the money is being used for special projects which target these violent drug traffickers and pay for overtime.
“The funds from the Safe Oklahoma Grant are making Tulsa and countless communities around the state safer for our friends, families and neighbors,” Chief Jordan said. “I appreciate Attorney General Hunter’s steadfast commitment to continuing this grant and his dedication to partnering with law enforcement agencies to clean up our streets.”
In addition to the methamphetamine, ecstasy and weapons, officials also seized nearly four pounds of marijuana, digital scales and other paraphernalia.
