OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police have busted a bar for allegedly selling much more than just drinks.

According to a search warrant, police said Tapatios Bar in the 1700 block of N.W. 10th St. is also trafficking drugs.

After numerous felony arrests over a five-month period, police said in court documents they believed the bar was a front for a much bigger operation.

During a September bar check, an officer said he went into the bar restroom and a man named Eusebio Garcia snorted something right in front of him and then the officer saw white powder on Gacia's nose. The warrant said Garcia was holding a baggie of 19 grams of cocaine.

In October, police said Javier Hernandez was in the parking lot urinating in public. They said Hernandez had a baggie of cocaine on him and told officers he bought it directly from the Tapatios bartender.

In December, officers said John Martinez was driving around a stolen car with Andrea Osorio. Police said Martinez had marijuana and three bags of cocaine on him; Osorio had 8 grams of cocaine on her. The warrant said Osorio admitted she was a bartender at Tapatios.

In January, officers pulled over Candelario Rivera for a traffic stop. They said they found 269 grams of cocaine in his car, and he admitted he works at Tapatios.

The warrant said all the cocaine arrests had one common denominator - Tapatios.

When officers searched the bar, they reportedly found lots of small baggies with cocaine residue and other drug paraphernalia.

We tried contacting the owners, but the bar was not open.
