BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say they have arrested a group of drug dealers who openly sold cocaine out of bars and restaurants in the ski resort town of Breckenridge.

The Summit Daily (https://bit.ly/2hTVT9g ) reports a drug task force arrested 21 people after a two-month investigation revealed an interconnected web of drug dealers working out of local businesses.

Prosecutors say at least one bar was shut down after the owner was charged with selling a half-ounce of cocaine to an undercover detective. Arrest affidavits say another man was charged after he slid a cigarette box containing cocaine across the bar at a tavern where he worked as a bartender.

The investigation began after the August death of a man who bought cocaine that had been laced with methamphetamine. Police said he likely purchased it a bar.
