Narcotics officers in Oklahoma seized over $1.2 million in drugs that were headed for South Bend, according to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.

On February 3, the interdiction unit conducted a traffic stop on a Chevy Impala traveling eastbound on I40 for improper use of a turn signal, reports said.

Several indicators prompted agents to search the car.

The search led to the seizure of 128 pounds of crystal meth and one pound of cocaine, agents said.

One of the people in the car told investigators they picked up the bags near San Diego and was paid to deliver them to Bradley Burns at his residence, 722 S. Kentucky Street in South Bend, according to federal court records.

The person told investigators they have made two other deliveries to the Kentucky Street address, reports said.

On February 4, investigators obtained a search warrant for the residence on Kentucky Street and arranged to have the informant deliver the drugs, which had been replaced with a counterfeit substance, to the residence, reports said.

After the informant arrived at the home, Burns' sister and the informant went to the trunk of the vehicle, reports said.

At this time, officers initiated a take down.

Burns ran from the residence but was apprehended, reports said.

A search of the Kentucky Street home led to the seizure of a .38 caliber revolver, an AK and AR style rifle, a money counter, cash, receipts for money orders, a heat sealer and heat sealer bags, according to court documents.

Burns has been charged with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to deliver and being a felon in possession of firearms.
