More than 40 people have been arrested in western Kansas on various drug and weapons charges, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation announced Wednesday.

This week's arrests come in the wake of a two-month long investigation by the KBI and various law enforcement agencies in western Kansas and eastern Colorado.

At least 41 people have been taken into custody for the distribution of marijuana and methamphetamine, and for various weapons violations.

The arrests were widespread, taking place in eight Kansas counties: Cheyenne, Ellis, Greeley, Logan, Rawlins, Sherman, Thomas and Wallace.

Arrests were also made in two Colorado counties, Cheyenne and Kit Carson. The KBI says additional arrests are expected.
