SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Authorities in Puerto Rico on Tuesday arrested 41 people accused of running a drug-trafficking ring in the capital of the U.S. territory.

U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodriguez said the suspects were indicted on charges of conspiring to sell cocaine, crack and marijuana around a public housing complex in the Hato Rey district of San Juan. She said the group began operating in 2007.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents executed the arrest warrants with help from Puerto Rico police and other U.S. agencies.

Officials said the suspects sometimes forced some residents at the public housing complex to abandon their apartments so they could be used for drug trafficking purposes. The suspects face between 10 years and life in prison if found guilty.
