CLAREMORE — The Rogers County Sheriff’s office and investigators from the Rogers County District Attorney’s office executed a search warrant on Oct. 17 for the home of Randy Gray, owner of the Flying F Ranchwear store, located at 1516 North Lynn Riggs Boulevard in Claremore.

Rogers County Deputy Jerry Smittle said RCSO received enough information on the suspects to obtain the search warrant.  
During the investigation, deputies discovered a large amount of marijuana and paraphernalia inside the home.  
Deputies also recovered an indoor marijuana grow operation hidden, as well as multiple firearms in a shed on the property.
