A suspected drug house was busted in Tahlequah.

FOX23 was was the only station there when the District 27 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force went inside of the home.

The task force arrested Bill Lyman and Johnathan Lyman.

Director of the task force Michael Moore and members of surrounding agencies said serving warrants is a big part of their job.

"This is getting dope off the streets. This is what we do," said Matt Young, District 27 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

Inside the home, authorities found plants that appeared to be weed and baggies full of seeds that appeared to be marijuana seeds. These drugs will be tested at a lab. 

Several guns were also found inside the home.

"I've never served a search warrant and not found stolen guns. That's the money, that's what they get to buy the dope by kicking in your door," said Moore.

Officers told FOX23 they found 17 guns. Now they have to check all of the serial numbers to see if any of them were stolen.

Moore said that this operation took some team effort from the DA, Cherokee National Marshalls, Adair County Sheriff's Office, Tahlequah Police Department, Sequoyah County and the Cherokee
County Sheriff's Office.

Lazy good for nothing @$$ho£€$. They think that they are doing something. When in reality they are robbing the public of rights that were lobbied away from the public by greedy industrial bullies (DuPont) in an orchestrated effort assisted by the (Government?) to line his pockets with money. While at the same time destroying the hemp rope industry. We need to gather all these greedy people up hang them on every lamp pole coast to coast and run their greed and lawlessness from our country.

"Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed the courage little seen in this day and age." This is all theater, so get it right.

"I've never served a search warrant and not found stolen guns. That's the money, that's what they get to buy the dope by kicking in your door," said Moore. WTF does that mean, in plain english could someone other than the wonderful FOX writers please break this quote down for me? Anyone with a 9th grade education will do just fine

This task force has been laying low since the disastrous high-speed chase and shoot-em-up at the Tulsa Promenade Mall during rush hour (and the height of Christmas shopping). We saw three plants barely an inch tall that "may" have been pot, and since when is it either unusual (or illegal) for people in rural places like Tahlequah to have a couple hunting rifles? Surely these elites dont need fox23's help in stretching the truth in order to stay in business.
