Major meth ring raided in Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO ” More than a dozen people were indicted Wednesday after law-enforcement targeting a methamphetamine distribution ring raided locations throughout the Bay Area.

About 200 officers served 10 search warrants and 14 arrest warrants in San Francisco, San Jose and Gilroy, according to the FBI.

One person was arrested Tuesday and 11 of the suspects were arrested Wednesday. Two more suspects remain at large.

All suspects face federal drug distribution charges, many of which carry life sentences, if they are convicted and get the maximum.

Authorities said the raids are part of a two-year investigation of a family-run distribution ring that was capable of distributing up to 20 pounds of methamphetamine a month.

The raids were conducted by police, FBI agents, the state Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement and a San Mateo County narcotics task force.
