OKLAHOMA CITY -- Two men were in federal court on Wednesday for trafficking tobacco and money laundering Wednesday.

SkyNews 9 HD was over the scene Tuesday night as ATF agents pulled hundreds of cartons of cigarettes out of an OKC storage unit.

The prosecution alleged Khawer Ghill and Ahsan Ullah sold some of the tobacco from a family member's convenience store and sold wholesale tobacco from a warehouse.

Ghill and Ullah have also been indicted for getting more than 50 credit cards and fraudulently taking money they never intended to repay.

Neither Ghill nor Ullah had an attorney, but both said they have plans to hire one. Both are being held in jail and are considered a flight risk.
