Several Baltimore residents are facing federal charges for participating in a fentanyl and heroin ring.
If convicted, the 8 defendants each face a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life.
Prosecutors say one of the accused also faces gun charges. All the defendants except one have been arrested and are in federal or state custody.
In a Monday statement, U.S. Attorney Robert Hur in Baltimore says his office is trying to do “everything possible to reduce overdose deaths from fentanyl and from all opioids.”
