MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say 10 people have been charged with conspiring to sell methamphetamine, cocaine and other drugs in western Tennessee.

The U.S. attorney’s office said Monday that agents with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies investigated and arrested 10 people from Memphis, Tennessee, and West Memphis, Arkansas, on Nov. 7. They face charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute large amounts of meth, cocaine and marijuana.
