MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Madison County authorities have busted what they're calling the county's largest heroin distribution and sales network.
Anderson Police Spokesman Det. Joel Sandefur says eight people are in custody.
They're all believed to be major heroin suppliers in Madison County. Sandefur says the arrests follow a six-month probe that traced the heroin ring from New York to Castleton near Indianapolis to Anderson. He says it came to a head Wednesday night when authorities executed a search warrant at an apartment in Castleton. They confiscated $100,000 in cash along with three pounds of heroin and a half-kilo of cocaine with a combined street value estimated at $250,000.
Sandefur says more arrests are possible.
