According to the U.S. Attorney's Office Middle District of Georgia, nine people have been indicted in a huge armed drug trafficking bust.
Eight of the individuals are from Middle Georgia and one is from Atlanta.
All individuals are being charged with their alleged participation in the armed distribution of drugs, specifically large quantities of methamphetamine and fentanyl across local Middle Georgia communities.
