Two in OSP charged with leading meth distribution
Law enforcers have exposed a prison drug ring run by members of the Indian Brotherhood who allegedly moved pounds of methamphetamine through eastern and central Oklahoma.
Two state prisoners identified as members of the brotherhood stand accused of directing at least six people to buy, move and sell methamphetamine. All eight were charged Thursday in relation to a conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine, according to a criminal complaint filed with the U.S. District Court of Eastern Oklahoma.
Prosecutors allege in the 43-page document that Cody McClendon, 35, of Tahlequah and Michael Lincoln, 39, of Tulsa conspired to traffic meth from inside Oklahoma State Penitentiary at McAlester. Prosecutors accused the duo of working with six others believed to be indentured to McClendon and Lincoln for related debts.
