TYLER, Texas (AP) - Authorities say six people from east Texas have been charged with illegal gambling, money laundering and drug trafficking.

U.S. attorney John Bales says police seized more than $30,000 in cash during the arrest earlier this week. Officers also took several firearms and methamphetamine.

The six people, all from Tyler, were arrested on charges of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, prohibition of illegal gambling businesses and conspiracy to money launder.

If they are convicted, they could face a sentence of life in federal prison.
