WEWOKA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities in Seminole County broke up an alleged methamphetamine ring and closed out a three-year investigation.

Agents arrested 26 people Friday morning and officials say they broke up a drug ring that was being supplied from Mexico.

Oklahoma City television station KWTV reports the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, District 22 Drug Task Force, U.S. Marshals, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office and Seminole police took part in the operation.

They arrested 21 people on warrants and arrested five more people for drug violations.

Officials say the investigation started in 2011 and uncovered a distribution ring that was bringing pound a week of Mexican meth to Oklahoma.

The defendants are being held at the jail in Wewoka.
