U.S. Attorney's Office adds Duluth office in time for indictment of 8 alleged drug traffickers

According to an indictment, the Chicago-based traffickers had been distributing meth and fentanyl

DULUTH - The U.S. Attorney's Office has hired a full-time criminal prosecutor to work out of the Federal Building in Duluth - the first time the Minnesota district has added a position outside of the Twin Cities just as eight alleged drug traffickers are charged this week with dealing meth and fentanyl out of the region.

Nichole Carter had worked for the St. Louis County Attorney's Office until she shifted to her new role in February.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger introduced Carter as part of a news conference announcing that, after a long-running investigation, eight alleged drug traffickers with a base in Chicago had been indicted on conspiracy to distribute meth and fentanyl.
