Lawton police say they've arrested 12 people — including a nurse — as part of a drug bust.

Lt. Todd Palmer says the arrests Thursday come after a three-month investigation that included Oklahoma Board of Nursing agents and the state Board of Pharmacy.

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward says the nurse arrested is accused of supplying a party drug called promethazine with codeine.

Officers say they also seized a large amount of drug paraphernalia and various firearms and other weapons.
