WASHINGTON — More people have been charged in connection with an operation that investigators said has been funneling drugs into our region.
The Maryland State Police say the operation was supplying drugs, especially heroin and fentanyl, throughout Prince George’s, Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties, as well as Baltimore City.
Five adults and two minors are the latest to be arrested; seven more adults were arrested last month.
Most of the suspects are charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics. Some are facing gang-related charges, and one man is charged with being a drug kingpin.
The investigation started in 2015 and has involved several different agencies including Homeland Security Investigations, the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office, and police in Anne Arundel County and Annapolis.
State police said the investigation continues, and they expect more arrests and charges.
