More than two dozen people living in Monahans and around West Texas are pleading guilty to felony drug trafficking charges.

You may remember when we first told you about the undercover investigation and drug bust that landed more than 30 people behind bars in late January.

Authorities with the DEA say 13 different agencies including the Monahans Police Department went door-to-door arresting most of the suspects.

Many of them are being charged with having or distributing cocaine and crack.

According to a recent report from the Monahans paper, many of those are expected to go to trial in federal court in June.

They say right now 27 people have entered guilty pleas for felony drug trafficking.

NewsWest 9 will have more on this story in the coming week.
