A meth investigation leads to nine arrests.

Nine people face charges connected to a meth investigation, including two people who face federal charges.

Gonzalo Ponce-Arturez, 35, from Austin and Raven Frederick-Holmes, 31, from Tulsa were indicted on federal charges for Conspiracy and Possession of More Than 500 Grams of Methamphetamine With Intent to Distribute.

The charges stem from a multi-jurisdictional operation that included agents and officers associated with the Cherokee Nation Marshals Service, Rogers County District Attorney's Office Investigators, Catoosa Police Department, Rogers County Sheriff's Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration and Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The investigation netted a total of nine arrests related to drug trafficking crimes in Rogers County and other locations in the Northern District of Oklahoma.
