MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — More than two dozen suspects have been nabbed in a crackdown on a West Texas-based methamphetamine ring linked to California and Nevada.

Prosecutors in Midland say 29 people arrested Thursday or already in custody face federal or state charges. Authorities are seeking nine more suspects.

Investigators say the meth was funneled through San Diego, Las Vegas and Dallas to West Texas.

Federal indictments unsealed Thursday in Midland include charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Some defendants were indicted earlier on charges of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Some suspects face state parole violation counts or other warrants in the Odessa-based ring operating since September. The defendants are from Midland, Odessa, Amarillo, San Diego and Las Vegas.
