Twenty people have been named as suspects in connection with a drug trafficking ring that allegedly brought cocaine from New York into Pennsylvania.

Authorities say charges have been filed against the suspected drug dealers following a two-and-a-half-year investigation.

Among those charged is Donald Edwards Jr. of Clifford. Officials said Edwards was charged with criminal conspiracy to possess with the intent to deliver cocaine. He also faces charges of cocaine possession and criminal use of a communication facility.

Edwards and nineteen other suspects were identified when Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced the results of an investigation.

Kane said cocaine was transported from the Bronx to northeastern Pennsylvania.

Officials said the Red Maples Golf Course in Waymart was a primary drug distribution point.

A grand jury identified the golf course owner, Angelo Pozza, as one of the leaders of the purported drug trafficking operation.

Authorities said during the investigation, agents made fourteen purchases from Pozza at the golf course.

Officials said evidence regarding the alleged ring was presented to a statewide investigating grand jury which recommended the charges against the twenty people identified by authorities Friday.-
