Fourteen people have been charged with roles in a heroin trafficking operation from Detroit to West Virginia.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld II says federal indictments unsealed Tuesday allege heroin was repeatedly sold in the Morgantown area in 2014 and 2015.

Nine defendants were arrested Tuesday, including five from Detroit, three from Morgantown and another from Miami, Florida. Five other suspects are being sought.
