Charges Filed in 18-Month Drug Ring Investigation

Posted: Updated:

Federal prosecutors in Fargo have charged 8 people in what investigators say is a drug-trafficking ring that involved members of violent street gangs in the Minneapolis area.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett Shasky says the suspects allegedly were involved in trafficking crack cocaine, powder cocaine, heroin, marijuana and oxycodone.

The 18-month-long investigation involved officials with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Cass County Drug Task Force in North Dakota.

Of the eight people being charged with drug trafficking, only two of them remain at the Cass County Jail. Prosecutors look to pursue the mandatory minimum of 10 years.
