Arizona grand jury indicts 11 in drug trafficking probe

February 28, 2019

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted 11 people who were allegedly involved with a drug distribution ring that distributed crack cocaine, Oxycodone and marijuana.

Officials with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office say a year-long investigation led by the Phoenix Police Department culminated this month when law enforcement agencies carried out multiple search warrants throughout the south Phoenix area.

Officers from several law enforcement agencies served 14 search warrants between Jan. 25 and Feb. 8.

Prosecutors say two of the 11 people indicted allegedly manufactured and sold the illegal drugs to several of the defendants.
