Authorities said Wednesday that they’ve dismantled a major drug-trafficking operation in northeast Kansas responsible for a college student’s fatal overdose in 2017, resulting in criminal charges against more than 50 people. Federal and local officials said they’ve been investigating trafficking in heroin, methamphetamines, the powerful opioid fentanyl and other drugs in the Manhattan area for three years. A federal grand jury issued 13 indictments last week charging 54 people with conspiring to distribute illegal drugs, illegally using guns and Facebook Messenger to further drug trafficking, and other crimes.
