'Tide-turning' heroin drug bust made in Duluth region; more than two dozen face charges

More than two dozen people are facing state and federal charges stemming from their alleged involvement in what authorities say was “a large heroin trafficking network” that brought drugs into northern Minnesota.

“This network has been responsible for bringing a near-constant supply of highly potent and highly addictive heroin into the city of Duluth and the surrounding communities of northeast Minnesota,” U.S. Attorney Gregory Brooker said Thursday during a news conference. Brooker said 12 people have been indicted on federal charges for their alleged roles in the distribution conspiracy.
