15 Accused of Roles in Multistate Heroin Ring

Fifteen people have been indicted for their alleged roles in a heroin supply network that authorities say distributed millions of dollars’ worth of the drug to dealers throughout the Northeast.

Acting New Jersey Attorney General John Hoffman announced the indictment Monday. It was handed up Friday by a state grand jury.

All 15 defendants are charged with first-degree racketeering and second-degree conspiracy to maintain heroin production facilities and distribute heroin.

The alleged ringleader, 37-year-old Segundo Garcia of Prospect Park, is also charged with leading a narcotics trafficking network. He could face life in prison if convicted.

Authorities say the drug network supplied multiple kilos of heroin per week to other suppliers and large-scale dealers. The ring allegedly distributed heroin to dealers in northern Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.
