"These arrests disrupted a violent drug trafficking ring and sent a clear message – if you are involved in illegal drug activity and violent crime in our city you will wake up one morning with law enforcement at your door. This case is at the heart of our collective mission to rid our communities of violent drug offenders and the destruction their activities create,” said Grant Mendenhall, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Indianapolis Division.

United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler said his department will continue going after and targeting these types of operations.
