SEATTLE — Three Snohomish County men are accused of participating in a drug trafficking ring between Mexico and Washington state.
The men, in their 20s and 30s from Monroe and Everett, made an appearance Thursday in U.S. District Court in Seattle, along with about 10 other suspects from around the state.
Investigators since 2011 have seized more than 56 pounds of heroin and eight pounds of methamphetamine in the case, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.
If convicted, the men face a mandatory minimum 10 years in prison because of the amount of drugs involved.
The South Snohomish County Narcotics Task Force assisted federal agents in the case.
