Police: 14 arrested in Galveston drug bust

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Galveston Police say they've arrested 14 people on felony drug charges after an extensive narcotics investigation.

A city police spokesman told The Galveston County Daily News on Wednesday there is a growing cocaine and methamphetamine problem in the city. He says the seven-month, multi-agency investigation resulted in 21 indictments. Arrest warrants have been issued for the five Galveston men who weren't detained in a police sweep Tuesday night.

The spokesman says law enforcement used undercover officers, recording devices and video cameras. He says some of the people charged have gang affiliations or connections to drug traffickers in Mexico.

The names of the people arrested have not been released.
