BP: Law officers nab 7 in what they say is first fentanyl operation in Duluth-Superior

 


DULUTH, Minn.—A yearlong investigation by local and federal law enforcement agencies has led to multiple charges in what authorities said was the first drug trafficking operation to focus on fentanyl distribution in northeast Minnesota.
