JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say 11 people have been arrested on methamphetamine-related charges.

The U.S. attorney's office for West Tennessee says the suspects were from Benton, Decatur, Henderson and Madison counties.

While making the arrests Thursday, authorities found illegal narcotics, drug paraphernalia and 10 firearms.

Charges listed in indictments handed down in February by a grand jury in Jackson include illegal possession and distribution of meth.

If convicted, the defendants could face a maximum of 20 to 30 years in prison.
