The Oklahoma Police Department’s Criminal Interdiction Team of Central Oklahoma (CITCO) recently seized 25 pounds of cocaine during a routine traffic stop. On October 15, officers assigned to CITCO arrested 40-year-old Romulo Romero of Arizona near I-40 & South Council in Oklahoma City. A K-9 team alerted officers to possible narcotics in Romero’s vehicle, leading to a further investigation. Subsequently, officers discovered 25 pounds of cocaine concealed inside the vehicle.
CITCO, a collaborative effort between the Oklahoma City Police Department and the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, played a crucial role in the successful drug bust. The suspect, Romulo Romero, has been taken into custody and is facing charges related to drug trafficking.
