11 Twin Cities men are federally indicted for their 12 year heroin ring lasting from 2000 to Oct. 15 2012, according to Star Tribune
The men are being charged with an indictment that states the possible distribution of 1 kilogram or more of heroin.
If convicted, the men face a maximum penalty of 10 years to life in prison, according to KARE 11
Several men were also charged with distribution or possession close to 138 grams of heroin.
This indictment is one of a couple that might be signaling the growling prevalence of heroin in Minnesota.
