CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Eighty-seven people face charges stemming from a drug investigation in north-central West Virginia.

More than a dozen police agencies arrested 78 people Tuesday. Nine others were already incarcerated on separated charges.

Forty-seven people face state charges and 40 face federal charges involving various drugs. Most of the cases involved heroin and most of the suspects are in Harrison County. Others are in Marion and Doddridge counties and in Pennsylvania.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Greater Harrison Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force.


This story corrects the number of people charged to 87, not more than 90.
