Oklahoma City police and FBI agents arrested nine people and seized cocaine and methamphetamine Thursday in connection with drug trafficking activity, an FBI spokesman said.

Agents seized 14 kilograms of cocaine, seven pounds of methamphetamine, six guns and about $40,000 in cash after serving search warrants at homes throughout Oklahoma City. FBI spokesman Clay Simmonds said those arrested could face a minimum of 15 years in prison.

Arrested were: Mario Alvarez Espinoza, 29; Chris Edwin Thrift, 50; Jose Alfredo Sanchez-Higuera, 48; Saul Sanchez, 27; Jaime Torres, 45; and Joe Bernard Curtis, 35. The names of three other people arrested were not released Thursday by authorities.

Officials are still looking for Eduardo Higuera-Sanchez, 47, and Ventura Esquival-Ochoa, 54, both of Oklahoma City. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call the FBI at 290-7770 or Oklahoma City police at 316-6830. Callers can remain anonymous.”
