Authorities bust drug ring on Oklahoma tribal land

Law enforcement authorities have busted a methamphetamine ring that used one of the Choctaw Nation's casinos in Oklahoma as a base.

A total of 34 federal and state arrest warrants were issued as the result of a five-year investigation. Tribal, state and federal authorities cooperated in the "Hell on the Border" operation.

The drug deals were being made out of the parking lot at the Choctaw Gaming Center in Pocolo, not inside the actual casino, officials said.
