5 men charged with running alleged North Texas drug ring, federal indictment in Dallas
Five men have been arrested for running what prosecutors say was a North Texas drug ring selling cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine.
Initial court appearances were scheduled Tuesday afternoon for the Dallas-area men, who'll face detention hearings later this week.
An indictment returned last week and unsealed Monday charges the men with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances. The alleged drug-related activity has been going on since May.
Further details on the investigation weren't immediately released.
