11 suspects indicted in meth, cocaine ring in N. Arizona

Posted: Updated:

A Coconino County grand jury indicted 11 suspects connected to a methamphetamine and cocaine operation in northern Arizona.

DPS said last year detectives learned of the wide-ranging ring and 10 people were identified as the main suppliers.

On May 1, nine search warrants were served in three counties and $22,000 cash was seized along with seven vehicles, 12 firearms, several surveillance systems, 10 ounces of meth, two ounces of cocaine, a marijuana growing operation and a meth lab.

DPS said the suspects arrested during "Operation Snowball" face prison sentences ranging from five to 15 years.

The suspects lived in Williams and Flagstaff.
