CEDAR BLUFF, Va. (AP) - More than 40 people face charges stemming from a drug investigation in Tazewell County.
 
    
The Tazewell County Narcotics Task Force announced the charges at a news conference Thursday at Cedar Bluff Town Hall. A special session of the Tazewell County grand jury indicted 47 people on a total 138 charges, including distribution of prescription drugs, methamphetamine, cocaine or heroin.
 
    
Commonwealth's Attorney Dennis said that many of the suspects have been arrested.
 
    
Lee says he believes the heroin cases are the first in the county, and that's disturbing. He hopes the heroin cases are an aberration and not the beginning of a new drug problem.
