GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Authorities say a two-year investigation into a southern Delaware drug distribution ring has netted charges against 13 people and the seizure of roughly three pounds of heroin.

Officials said Tuesday that 13 law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation.

Authorities allege that 31-year-old Deangelo McGlotten of Felton was the ring leader of the drug distribution network, and that the illegal proceeds were being laundered by 37-year-old Salman Choudhary of Georgetown through casinos, businesses, and personal properties.

It was not immediately clear whether any of the suspects have lawyers.

Officials say the suspects are charged with 77 separate criminal offenses, and that the investigation resulted in the seizure of heroin valued at more than $1 million.
