BOSTON (AP) - Six men have been indicted on interstate gun trafficking, state Attorney General Maura Healey’s Office said Monday.

The men, two of whom are from Florida and four who are from Massachusetts, allegedly transported guns, primarily from Florida and Michigan, to sell in Massachusetts.

Healey’s office said the investigation, led by the state police, also uncovered drug trafficking and illegal firearms.

A statewide grand jury returned indictments against the men last week for a range of firearm charges. They’re set to be arraigned in Bristol and Plymouth superior courts at later dates, according to Healey’s office.

Two of the men were arrested in July with seven firearms in their possession.

Search warrants executed on their homes and other locations in August and September turned up more firearms and ammunition, as well as cocaine and heroin, Healey’s office said.
