Fourteen people are in jail this morning after what police are calling a major overnight drug bust in Carter County.

The Carter County Sheriff's Department made the bust behind Milligan College in West Carter County. The Sheriff's Department says they seized methamphetamine making products, weapons, and cash, from what Sheriff Chris Mathes calls a "methamphetamine trafficking organization."

Sheriff Mathes says those arrested range from alleged meth manufacturers to meth users.
Sheriff's officials say some of those arrested will face federal charges.

Sheriff Mathes says this drug bust isn't the end of the investigation, and he still expects to make more arrests in this case.
He also says that this is a joint investigation between local, state, and federal authorities.
