The U.S. Attorney’s Office is scheduled to announce 14 arrests stemming from a four-month-long investigation conducted by the ATF and CMPD.

Anne Tompkins, the U.S. Attorney over the Western District of North Carolina has scheduled a press conference for 12:45 Wednesday afternoon to announce the arrests made in connection with an investigation that focused on the Sugar Creek/Interstate 85 corridor.

Details released so far show that the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives worked with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department over the last four months, and officials arrested 14 individuals Wednesday morning related to their investigation.

Of the 14 arrested, the U.S. Attorney’s Office says seven defendants will face federal drug and gun charges, while the other seven will face state criminal charges.

In the early morning roundup, officials seized 10 guns.

Authorities say the suspects used a local restaurant and parking lots of gas stations were used for drug dealing and gun sales along the Sugar Creek corridor.
