Quapaw Nation Marshals service efforts played a major role in the conviction of a drug kingpin, Luis Alfredo Jacobo of Bakersfield, Calif.
In 2019 Quapaw Nation Marshals seized one pound of methamphetamines and over $16,000 in cash from Downstream Casino Resort. The seized drugs and cash combined with fingerprint recognition tipped off authorities which led to multiple convictions and most recently, the drug kingpin himself.
Jacobo is thought to have been responsible for directing three separate drug conspiracies in the states of Oklahoma and Missouri. It is said that Jacobo sent more than 2,000 pounds of methamphetamine into Northeastern Oklahoma and Missouri areas as well as gained approximately $30 million net profit from the drug sales.
Drug Enforcement Administration, (DEA) Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Miami, Oklahoma Police Department, Grove Police Department, Quapaw Nation Marshal Service, Bakersfield Police Department, Kern County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Oklahoma District 13 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force were involved in conducting the investigation.

“A great job by all agencies," said Charles Addington, Chief of Quapaw Nation Marshals. "Our efforts to disrupt the source of supply has a significant impact on the illegal narcotics being distributed in our communities.”
