NEWPORT, Ark. (AP) - Twelve people have been arrested after a year-long undercover investigation of drug trafficking in Arkansas.

According to a news release, the 12 people are residents of Batesville, Diaz, Newark and Newport and were charged with various counts of delivery of methamphetamine, cocaine, hydrocodone and alprazolam.
