Thirteen people have been arrested on drug charges in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts after multiple agencies conducted a months-long drug trafficking investigation. Most were arrested on a charge of conspiracy to sell methamphetamine.

The arrests began in December and continued Thursday. Authorities said one person supplied methamphetamine and cocaine to others, and that the drugs were distributed in the Concord area, Lakes Region, and Maine.
