Four Tulsa residents were busted after a drug sting made by Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies.

According to an arrest report, Pedro Bustos Carmona and three others were arrested after a drug investigation started in July.

On July 18, an undercover deputy set up a meeting to purchase drugs from Carmona. He met Carmona at Observation Point apartments near 129th E. Ave. and 41st Street.

An initial field test on the drugs purchased from Carmona came back as methamphetamine.

The second purchase listed in the report occurred three days later. Carmona met the detective near 41st and Memorial.

The report states that Carmona told the detective that a shipment of "better stuff" would arrive the same day.

The third purchase took place on Aug. 4 at an apartment complex near 4200 S. Garnett.

When the deputy arrived, Carmona called and told the undercover detective he was busy. Another man arrived in a silver Chrysler and made the transaction.

On Aug. 6, another deputy went to Carmona to purchase more meth and to locate the apartment he was staying at. Detectives then learned that Pedro had been shot over the weekend.

On the Aug. 21, the undercover deputy asked Carmona how much it would cost for a quarter pound of "ICE." Carmona told the detective it would cost him $3,000. The price letter increased to $3,200.

The deal was set and the undercover detective planned to meet Carmona at a location near 41st and Sheridan.

According to the arrest report, a surveillance team set up in the parking lot. Carmona met the deputy at his car and the detective gave him half of the money. The rest of the money would be turned over after seeing the "ICE."

Carmona handed the detective a large bundle wrapped in saran wrap. The detective asked if it was "good stuff" and then handed Carmona$1,600. The arrest team then moved in and took Carmona into custody.

Juan Rodriguez-Garcia, Jesus Salvador Orbe-Silva and Francisco Garcia were also taken into custody.

There were multiple guns located in the vehicles and police confiscated 125.7 grams of methamphteamine. \

Carmona, Rodriguez-Garcia and Salvador are being held by U.S. Immigration and Customs. Salvador is being held on $55,000 bond for trafficking a controlled and dangerous substance, conspiracy and possession of a firearm.
