Prosecutors have announced the federal indictment of eight alleged members of a violent drug organization blamed for as many as eight homicides in one Pennsylvania community.

U.S. Attorney William McSwain says a drug gang called "Trinidad DTG" distributed methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl and cocaine in the Reading area.

McSwain announced the indictment at a news conference Thursday with other law enforcement officials.

Authorities blame Trinidad DTG for a spike in homicides in Berks County last year. Berks County District Attorney John Adams called it the most violent drug trafficking organization ever encountered in that area.

Prosecutors say three of the defendants are already facing state homicide charges.

McSwain says the probe is continuing and there could be more arrests.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         https://wjactv.com/news/local/pennsylvania-drug-gang-blamed-for-homicides-8-indicted-03-14-2019
