Massive crackdown on cocaine traffickers in the Twin Ports

Posted: Updated:

Police have arrested 30 people in an alleged crack cocaine trafficking ring in the Twin Ports.

The arrests in Duluth and Superior Wisconsin came this week after a nine-month investigation dubbed 'operation crackdown.'

Investigators say suspects were trading crack cocaine for government food-assistance debit cards.

Authorities used decoy cards to conduct controlled buys of cocaine.
