WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. - A large scale drug interdiction effort along the Arkansas border led to five arrests and the seizure of nearly $7,000 in cash on Wednesday.
Authorities served arrest warrants and interviewed known drug suspects - all in effort to reduce drug trafficking in communities along the state line.
A young child was also rescued from a home where investigators say meth was being cooked.
District 27 District Attorney Brian Keuster tells 2NEWS, "We have declared war on drugs. And will we continue to fight this battle until our communities are safe."
It was the result of a combined effort by the District 13 and 27 drug task forces - including officers from from Watts Police as well as Westville and West Siloam Springs.
Investigators tell 2 NEWS, drug charges will likely be filed against four other suspects as a result of Wednesday's drug interdiction effort.
