TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in west Alabama have arrested two dozen people on drug-related charges.

The Tuscaloosa News reports (https://bit.ly/1kYzD4v ) that the arrests Friday came during sweeps that resulted from several months of investigation by the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force. Tuscaloosa police spokesman Lt. Brad Mason says the investigations are ongoing and additional arrests are possible.

Four of the 24 people arrested were charged only with misdemeanors, but the remaining suspects face more serious charges, including sale of a controlled substance within three miles of a school, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, and various possession and sale of cocaine charges.

They were being held on bond amounts ranging from $5,000 to $156,000.
