DETROIT (AP) - Federal authorities say they’ve broken up a suspected drug smuggling operation between Detroit and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1KchkK9 ) that Lamarol “Shawn” Abram is accused of operating the ring for three years between the state’s largest city and the small community of Gwinn until the 37-year-old and his girlfriend were indicted in July. They’re charged in a drug conspiracy.

Abram is due Sept. 22 in federal court in Detroit. His attorney declined to comment Thursday about the case.

Federal authorities say the ring ran out of homes at the site of the former K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base, located south of Marquette. Court records say the case stems from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation into heroin and cocaine smuggling that included the area.
