TULSA, Okla. — A man faces a federal complaint after law enforcement reportedly found as much as $5 million in marijuana in rental trucks in Tulsa.
According to a release from the United States Department of Justice Tuesday, Kong Meng Vang, 34, of Tulsa was charged with possession of more than 100 kilograms of marijuana with intent to distribute.
A complaint alleged that state and federal law enforcement officers executed search warrants at Vang’s home, located on North Garrison Avenue, and his business, Vang Dyno Performance on East 46th Place in East Tulsa, resulting in the seizure of nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana from two rental trucks, a cell phone, three semi-automatic handguns and several additional firearms. The trucks were reportedly in Vang's front yard backed up against each other with cargo doors open. Police found more weapons at his business.
The marijuana was reportedly worth about $5 million wholesale.
Investigators said the marijuana came from a grow operation in California.
The complaint came after a month long investigation by the Tulsa Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service, according to United States Attorney Trent Shores. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Wilson will prosecute the case.
Tulsa police said the bust was the largest in the department's history.
