A federal prosecutor in West Virginia says 18 people have been indicted in a drug distribution network involved in moving large amounts of heroin from Baltimore to the Martinsburg area.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II announced Tuesday that 31-year-old Steven Robinson of Baltimore is accused of orchestrating a drug trafficking operation, while 25-year-old Terrard Ansor of Baltimore and 28-year-old Brittany Brooks of Randallstown, Pennsylvania, are accused of assisting Robinson. Fifteen others are accused of helping redistribute heroin.

A news release from Ihlenfeld's office said four defendants haven't been located yet. Thirteen of those charged are from West Virginia.
