Federal investigators broke a major heroin ring in the Twin Cities and, according to the indictment released Wednesday, eleven men face charges, KSTP reports.

Many of the defendants will also face distribution and possession with intent to distribute charges, KARE 11 says.
According to KSTP, ten of the men have pleaded not guilty and the trial has been set for January.
If convicted, the eleven defendants could face a maximum penalty of ten years to life in federal prison, KARE 11 reports.
