PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Three men accused of distributing large quantities of cocaine and heroin mixed with fentanyl throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts have been arrested.

Rhode Island State Police raided five locations in Cranston and Providence on Monday, seizing about 200 grams of cocaine and about 55 grams of heroin and fentanyl.
