Police arrest 9 in drug case

NORMAN — FBI and Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty announced the arrest of nine individuals Monday, two from Moore, who were involved in an illegal drug trafficking organization.

Robbin Lopez, 50, and Lyndie Prentice, also known as Maria Pena, 34, were the two Moore individuals arrested Friday.

Lopez was charged in a federal criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court, Western District, on June 20, which was unsealed Monday, with providing a firearm to a convicted felon.

Prentice was charged in a separate complaint filed June 20 and unsealed Monday with 11 other individuals for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute not less than 50 grams of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamines, a Schedule II controlled substance, and a quantity of marijuana, a Schedule I controlled substance.

The complaint also charges Prentice and two others with conspiracy to launder money. The complaint alleges the conspiracy took place from November 2011 through May 2013 and involved the distribution of methamphetamines and marijuana in Oklahoma City and throughout Oklahoma.

In addition to Lopez’s and Prentice’s arrest, others arrested on Friday included:

· Bryan J. Alcorta, aka Vicious, 25, of Altus

· Robert Ray Sanchez, 25, of Altus

· Jason Lee Herrera, 25, of Oklahoma City

· Erlinda Ramirez, aka Gina and Erlinda Castron, 43, of Oklahoma City

· Alaciano Ramirez, aka Lil Capone, 20, of Oklahoma City

· Tabitha Frair, 28, of Oklahoma City

· Isabel Marie Favela, aka Big Mona, 32, of Oklahoma City

Friday’s arrests are the result of investigation and cooperation by a number of law enforcement agencies.

The investigation was conducted by the Oklahoma City Safe Streets Task Force (FBI, Oklahoma City Police Department, Midwest City Police Department), District III Drug Task Force, ATF, IRS, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Moore Police Department, Norman Police Department and the Oklahoma State Department of Corrections.

The public is reminded that these charges are merely an accusation and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
