Five men were arrested following a drug trafficking investigation spanning several counties.

The arrests came after a nearly 2-year investigation by a number of agencies following fentanyl overdoses.

Special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said some of the men sold and distributed heroin laced with the potentially deadly opiate.

Investigators said along with drugs, they also seized cash, counterfeit bills, and two weapons during their raids.
