SYRACUSE -- Attorney General Letitia James today announced the indictment of 65 individuals charged with conspiring in two major drug distribution networks that transported heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine to Onondaga County, St. Lawrence County, Oswego County, Oneida County, and Jefferson County. As alleged in the two indictments unsealed in Onondaga County Court today, this investigation led to the recovery of approximately 4,700 bags of heroin and fentanyl, which had all been pre-packaged for easy distribution by the trafficking ring (with a street value estimated at approximately $140,000), and approximately 2 kilos of cocaine (with a street value estimated at more than $200,000).   

The law enforcement agencies conducted a 15-month investigation that included covert surveillance and hundreds of hours of wiretaps, aimed at rooting out heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine dealers operating in St. Lawrence County, Oswego County, Oneida County, Onondaga County, and Jefferson County.
