Those indicted include:
*36-year-old Kevin W.

*24-year-old Kyle M. Ross, of Hillsboro, for trafficking heroin and possession of heroin with a forfeiture specification for cash. Authorities say the indictment is the result of “a vehicle stop on June 10, 2014, in which Ross was arrested on a weapons charge and found to be in possession of two bags of heroin and $6,000 cash.”
*23-year-old Ryan Hurst, of Leesburg, for trafficking heroin and possession of heroin. The indictment alleges Hurst was found with 65 capsules of heroin during a stop on July 1, 2014.
