SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A federal grand jury in Puerto Rico has indicted 25 suspects on charges of running a multimillion-dollar drug trafficking ring.

U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodriguez says the suspects are accused of distributing cocaine, heroin, crack, marijuana and prescription pills in a public housing complex in the north coastal town of Manati.

She said Thursday that the group allegedly began operating in 2010 and generated at least $6 million in sales.
