(WDAZ-TV) - Law enforcement officers were honored Tuesday for their work in a massive drug bust.

More than 20 people were arrested for various drug offenses on the Spirit Lake Reservation.

FBI officer Jennifer Keegan says the cooperation was crucial in conducting such a massive investigation.

Officers from several different organizations were all honored for their work in the case.

"The Devils Lake Police Department, the FBI, the BIA and the BCI with the state. This is the way we're gonna address the crime problem, all of us working together," Keegan said.

Tribal courts also worked with the U.S. Attorney's office to determine which court would lead to the most convictions as a result of the drug bust.
