Feds Disrupt Large Scale Milwaukee Heroin Operation

Twenty Milwaukee residents are under arrest for what federal officials call a "large scale drug trafficking organization" that's operated here for years.

Federal prosecutors say 23 people from Wisconsin were involved in the drug network. Officials say the leaders are three brothers who acquired most of their heroin from someone in Chicago. Suspects range in age from 24 to 65. Authorities seized $300,000 in cash, five guns and a kilo of heroin during yesterday's arrests.
