(Moab-AP) -- A narcotics task force in southern Utah has made its biggest drug bust ever with the arrest of 23 people in the Moab area.

Authorities say the accused ran a marijuana and methamphetamine distribution ring. The suspects are in the Grand County jail awaiting felony charges.

A half-dozen law enforcement agencies worked on the case for a year. Their work wrapped up with the arrests early yesterday morning.

Task force agents say they have warrants for additional suspects who eluded Friday's dragnet.
