CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities have broken up an alleged heroin trafficking scheme involving 18 people, who are accused of delivering the drug from Dayton to Portsmouth in southern Ohio.

A 29-count indictment unsealed in Cincinnati federal court on Thursday says the suspects conspired to deliver heroin over a two-year period, in which they distributed the drug out of seven Portsmouth locations. Law enforcement officials said two of those places were motels.

Nine of those facing charges are from Portsmouth, while eight are from Dayton. Another defendant is from Lancaster.

All are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin, a crime punishable by at least 10 years and up to life in prison.
