More than a dozen people were in federal court Wednesday after officers busted a drug trafficking ring across Green Country.

The U.S. Attorney announced that a grand jury indicted 22 people for trafficking and money laundering.

This has been a month's long investigation into meth trafficking in the area.

Agents and officers served nearly a dozen warrants at several different locations Wednesday. It was a joint effort between city officers, county deputies, and federal agents.

Investigators say the defendants would sell large amounts of meth throughout the area and then send the money back to Mexico.

The suspects have all been indicted on several charges, including money laundering, drug conspiracy, and possession of meth with intent to distribute.

The judge said 14 different people have been charged with nearly one hundred counts in one case alone.

As is standard at an arraignment, all but one person has pleaded not guilty to the charges. One person wanted to get a private attorney before making any decisions.
