CANTON, Texas (AP) - More than a dozen people have been arrested in a crackdown on drugs and stolen weapons in East Texas.

Investigators say warrants were carried out Tuesday in Wood and Van Zandt counties. Indictments were returned in Canton and as part of a federal inquiry since last year.

Officials say at least 16 people were arrested in the initial raids by multiple law-enforcement agencies.

Authorities say the crackdown led to the confiscation of methamphetamine and stolen weapons linked to drug cases.

Further details weren’t immediately available.
