CHICKASHA, Oklahoma -

Drugs, guns and thousands of dollars in cash were all items confiscated during a big bust in Chickasha.

The Grady County Drug Task Force paired up with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's Tactical Team to search a home at 1708 Idaho St. in Chickasha.

Agents arrested Jeffrey Hunt and Marla Mahler, who both previously spent time in jail for possession of drugs. Donald and Cody Hunt are also in custody after agents found all four to be in possession of the drugs, guns, and cash.

"We felt like they were dangerous and a threat to the community," said Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks.

Hicks leads the drug task force for District Six and explains his agents began investigating they received a tip the suspects were selling stolen firearms. 

During a search of the home, agents did recover the guns, plus meth and marijuana. Hicks says it appeared the suspects were dealing the drugs.

"It was cut up and placed in individual bags for sale," said Hicks.

The suspects now face several charges including possession of drugs with the intent to distribute and possession of firearms during the commission of a felony.

Agents also recovered $24,000 that will be forfeited to the county and then funneled back to the Grady County's Drug task Force. Hicks explains at a time when the drug task forces in every county in Oklahoma are facing budget cuts due cutbacks in federal funding big seizures help keep the efforts going.

"A lot of drug busts done in Grady County are by the task force and we are going to continue to go after and protect the community."
