On April 17, the U.S. Justice department announced the indictment of 55 people on firearms and narcotics charges in Warren.  155 firearms were seized.

At the same time, an additional 42 people were charged in state court on similar charges.

The indictments allege a conspiracy involving 21 people who are accused of bringing large quantities of heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine from Detroit to Warren, as well as another conspiracy that brought heroin from Columbus to Warren and Dayton.

The government claims that others sold Oxycodone, Hyrdrocodone, heroin and crack cocaine.

Some face multiple indictments for alleged illegal possession and sale of firearms.
