CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — Twenty-seven people ranging in age from 27 to 58 are facing methamphetamine-related charges after a roundup in St. Louis and St. Charles counties.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that charges were filed Dec. 5. All told, 60 felony charges were filed ranging from manufacturing, endangering the lives of children and shopping for illegal amounts of pseudoephedrine, a key meth precursor.

Authorities say most of the suspects confessed to their roles in the crimes.
