Devils Lake Police say 16 people were taken into custody after a year-long under-cover drug investigation.

The operation was conducted Wednesday by several agencies including the FBI, BIA, BCI and the Ramsey and Benson County Sheriff's Departments.

All of the charges against the suspects are felonies.

The drugs involved include Marijuana and prescription pills.

The 16 were arrested after warrants were issued, leading to 24 total counts of delivery of a controlled substance and 1 count of theft of property.

Officials involved say they're happy to have the drugs off the street because they usually lead to other problems.

Ages of the individuals vary from 19 to 61.

Devils Lake Police Detective Rob Hach says all of the individuals have had their bond hearings.

This is an on-going investigation and more arrests are pending.
