ASHLAND, Ohio — A grand jury has indicted eight individuals after a drug-trafficking investigation resulted in the seizure of more than $1 million in drugs in northern Ohio.
State and local authorities say the indictments stemmed from a probe into a drug-trafficking organization operating in Ashland, Medina, and Wayne counties.
A statement by Ohio's attorney general on Monday said the investigation uncovered heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs and marijuana. Authorities also found cash, illegally-owned guns and items used to make heroin in pill form.
A total of 116 charges were filed. At least five of the suspects indicted by an Ashland County grand jury were in custody Monday.
Six of the eight suspects charged are accused of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity relating to the sale of heroin and cocaine.
