NEW YORK – Authorities in New York City say they have dismantled a family-run heroin ring that hid the drugs in cereal boxes.
Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson said Thursday that two dozen people are charged in a 368-count indictment.
Thompson says the operation netted about $1.5 million last year.
He says the ring supplied more than a dozen distributors, including a Manhattan court supervisor and a drug counselor.
Thompson says the group sold about 25,000 packs of heroin each month.
