ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say 17 suspects are facing a total of 26 charges following a drug bust in Athens.

The Athens News Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1DW7cyv ) that the arrests were made Friday as part of the Athens Police Department’s “Spring Fling 2015” operation.

Athens police Chief Floyd Johnson said the operation was carried out with investigators from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office. They say officers worked in two different waves to conduct the operation, which netted marijuana, crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia and $2,000 in cash.

Those arrested face charges ranging from possession of drug paraphernalia and controlled substances to distribution of crack cocaine.
