The New York State Attorney General is announcing a big sweep of drug dealers in Central New York that she blames for distributing narcotics across at least five counties.


Bob Joseph/WNBF News [file][/caption]Letitia James visited Syracuse April 25 to announce the Central City drug bust that netted indictments against 65 people, shutting down what authorities said were two major drug trafficking rings.  In all, some 93-counts are filed against the defendants following the months-long investigations.

James says the rings are accused of moving significant amounts of drugs across Central and Upstate New York.

The operations were said to have been conducted in Onondaga, Saint Lawrence, Jefferson, Oswego and Oneida Counties and involved the sale of cocaine, heroin and fentanyl.
