ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say more than 40 people in southern New Mexico have been arrested in connection with an eight-month undercover drug sting.

Otero County Sheriff Benny House told the Alamogordo Daily News (https://goo.gl/KD4Hts) that 42 people were taken into custody on various drug-related offenses this week from a multi-agency operation.

House says most were arrested for trafficking or distribution of drugs ranging from marijuana, methamphetamine, ecstasy and heroin. He says others were arrested for conspiracy to traffic or distribute drugs.

House says the operation was focused on arresting individuals known for trafficking or distributing drugs.

The sheriff’s office didn’t have a total for the amount of narcotics seized during the arrests.
