“My office is committed to working in partnership with federal, state, and local law, to dismantle large-scale drug trafficking conspiracies which impact our communities, as here with the New Castle and Farrell communities,” said U.S. Attorney Chung.

“These arrests disrupted a violent drug trafficking organization; a top priority within our mission,” said FBI Pittsburgh Special Agent in Charge Mike Nordwall. “These arrests are a result of the continuing and relentless efforts of the FBI and our federal, state, and local partners to rid our streets of these criminals and make our communities safe.”

“The rise of fentanyl has ripped through Western Pennsylvania and our office is determined to hold those who profit from these narcotics accountable to the law. Close collaboration with our law enforcement partners has shut down this ring of drug traffickers and led to this indictment,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “These substances ruin lives and destroy communities. We will not rest to turn the tide against this epidemic and to keep Pennsylvanians safe.”
