JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say seven Dyer County residents have been arrested on charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess methamphetamine and the drug known as “ice.”

The U.S. attorney’s office says the seven suspects were arrested on Thursday.

Prosecutors say the arrests are the result of a yearlong investigation in which law enforcement officials have seized illicit narcotics, money, firearms and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities say “ice” is methamphetamine with at least 80 percent purity.

The case was investigated by members of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Dyer County Sheriff’s Department and the Dyersburg Police Department.
