Authorities are rounding up fourteen people who federal investigators believe are responsible for flooding the Youngstown area with controlled substances like heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and tramadol.

The arrests are based on a 54-page, 46-count federal indictment alleging that Terrence Chauncey May used a LaSalle Avenue home on Youngstown’s South Side to distribute drugs to others involved in the alleged conspiracy.

According to the indictment, other South Side homes on East Evergreen Avenue and Southern Boulevard, as well as West Side locations of Matta Avenue and Rhoda Avenue, were used in the distribution scheme.

Investigators say the conspirators used code words over cell phones to set up the drug sales.

The suspects are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and fentanyl.

In addition, the indictment charges various members of the drug trafficking organization with using a communication facility in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, distribution of cocaine base (crack), distribution of fentanyl and fentanyl, distribution of heroin and fentanyl, distribution of fentanyl and distribution of tramadol and fentanyl.

Thomas May, Jr is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
