Federal authorities say 17 people have been arrested after a lengthy methamphetamine investigation in western Nebraska and eastern Colorado.
The office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg in Omaha said Tuesday that all 17 are charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession of meth.
The investigation included federal agents and officers from several local and regional law enforcement agencies in Nebraska and Colorado. Officers seized more than three pounds of meth and $8,000 in cash.
Gilg's office says the arrests occurred in Ogallala and Brule in Nebraska and in several western Nebraska and eastern Colorado communities.
