JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A twelve month investigation into a Jackson County drug trafficking ring has resulted in 12 arrests, including the man considered the ring leader, Christopher Carl Brown. 

The investigation began last January when agents learned Brown used a network of people to cross state lines into Alabama and Louisiana to buy pseudoephedrine products. Those products were then brought to Mississippi to make methamphetamine. 

Sheriff Mike Byrd tells us all 12 people pleaded guilty. This week, Brown and three others were sentenced. 

The remaining eight defendants will be sentenced in the coming months.
