Drugs, cash on display by Durant police
DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — Durant police are tallying up all the drug seizures they've made over the past year — around seven-and-a-half pounds of controlled dangerous substances, much of it being methamphetamine.
In the past three weeks, the department seized $26,000 worth of CDS and $10,000 in cash along with a number of weapons.
In addition to raw methamphetamine, police are also confiscating homemade pressed pills with unknown amounts of fentanyl mixed in.
A drug bust can begin as something as simple as a traffic stop.
"And that's typically how it goes," said police spokesperson Sgt. Nick Spencer. "It's just an evolution that ... that could start just very easily as a general interaction with somebody on the street."
Once seized, any cash goes to the Bryan County treasurer's office, and the controlled substances are transferred to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation lab for analysis and destruction.
