Texas Authorities have arrested 14 people for their role in a drug ring responsible for peddling meth and the date rape drug GHB, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office said a multi-county operation resulted in the seizure of four pounds of methamphetamine, over 30 pounds of gamma-hydroxybutyrate —(GHB), referred to as the date rape drug — four guns and $14,000 in cash.

Sheriff’s officials said the investigation initiated back in March after students in Weatherford, Texas, located about 60 miles west of Dallas told a school official that a resident was selling large amounts of drugs.

Investigators said the drugs seized during the operation originated from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to the Associated Press.

Sheriff’s officials said more arrests are possible in addition to the fourteen suspects already in custody. One suspect remains at-large, The Dallas Morning News reported.

The alleged members of the drug ring face various charges, including engaging in organized criminal activity, drug trafficking, and drug distribution.

Authorities identified those arrested in Friday’s operation as Ariel Brown, Colton Bigham, Chelsea Duncan, Landon Gass, Nicholas Gomez, Michael Higgins, Stephen Lee, William Johnson, Brandon Malaspina, Sue Mobley, Tandyn Moran, Kortney Stepich, Ascension Vela and Coty Franks.
