WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say they've seen an increase in cases where a large number of people conspire to manufacture methamphetamine.

WYMT-TV in Hazard reported a federal grand jury last week indicted a dozen people in a Whitley County meth conspiracy, and more arrests are likely in the case.

The investigation began at a house in the Canadatown community on March 1. Kentucky State Police spokesman Don Trosper said the Williamsburg Police Department arrested two suspects. Officers also found guns and an explosive device. The investigation led to 10 additional suspects.

Trosper said the sale of pseudoephedrine is limited to a small amount, so several people get involved in making the illicit drug.

All 12 suspects await a federal court hearing.
