COLUMBUS - More than two dozen people have been arrested in connection to an alleged cocaine ring in Sandusky, Ottawa and Wood counties.
According to a release issued Tuesday from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine's office, 25 people were recently indicted and arrested on cocaine-related charges in the three counties, and many face an additional charge of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity.
The indictments come after several years of investigation on behalf of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and law enforcement from Sandusky, Ottawa and Wood counties, the release states.
"The allegations against these suspects are very serious," DeWine stated in the release. "Cocaine ruins lives, and I'm glad my office's BCI agents were able to work closely with local law enforcement to get the alleged users and traffickers off the streets."
