DAYTON -- Authorities say more than 20 people were indicated after a six-month investigation into drug trafficking in a northern Kentucky community.

Media outlets reported that authorities seized fentanyl, meth, cocaine and more drugs and firearms as part of the crackdown in Dayton.

The Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force began the operation -- called Operation River Sweep -- in January. The strike force is made up of narcotics officers from the region.

Dayton Police Chief David Halfhill said the community doesn't have major drug dealers.

He said the users he does see often travel to Covington or Cincinnati for drugs and sell among themselves.
