At 9 a.m. deputies also arrested Ulises Niatos Silva, 23, at 13009 East 27th Place after finding balloons full of heroin packaged for sale and $3,117. Silva reportedly told police his only job was selling heroin.
All four suspects were booked on complaints of trafficking a controlled drug, the possession and reception of drug proceeds and the possession of drug paraphernalia.
Shannon Clark with the TCSO said the heroin that was seized had likely come to Tulsa through Mexican cartels. Clark said the amount of cash that was seized, $56,000 along with the total of six ounces of pure heroin is "a big deal for here in Tulsa."
Clark also said that Mexican heroin is making a big push back into the Tulsa community,
