Federal authorities have indicted alleged members of a drug organization operating out of North Baltimore.
Baltimore Police Maj. Richard Gibson told residents in an email that the group was known as the Glenwood/Craig Organization and operated in the 600 block of Glenwood Avenue, in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood.
"An abundance of illegal firearms and drugs were also seized," Gibson said.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Maryland said eight defendants had been taken into custody after being charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute cocaine and heroin.
The indictment did not outline the scope of the allegations in the case.
Charged in the case are: Charles Gilliam Jr., Theodore Smith, Darryl Scott, Anthony Hart, Leon Koger, Tarik Brooks, Jermaine Epps and Asante Leroy Marshall. They did not have attorneys listed in court records.
