Feds say Denver drug ring with ties to Mexico dismantled

DENVER (AP) - Authorities say they have dismantled two drug-trafficking organizations with ties to Mexico that peddled meth, heroin, crack and other drugs in the Denver area.

Federal authorities Friday announced indictments against 54 people as part of a two-year investigation that found links among street level dealers in Colorado and sources in Mexico.

Officers seized nearly 20,000 grams of methamphetamine, along with other drugs, 13 guns and $94,000.

The four indictments targeted two gangs. Twenty-eight people were arrested Friday. Authorities are still searching for 12 others.

U.S. Attorney John Walsh says the impact of the case remains to be seen.
