LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - State police say a three-month narcotics investigation in the Las Cruces area has netted more than two dozen arrests.

Sgt. Elizabeth Armijo said in a release Tuesday the investigation targeted several drug trafficking rings in Dona Ana County selling methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin and marijuana. The 26 people arrested face state or federal charges, and Armijo indicated there would be more arrests.

She says some of the suspects are known gang members with long criminal histories.

Several agencies helped New Mexico State Police in the investigation, including the Las Cruces police, FBI and U.S. Marshal’s Office.
