CLEVELAND: Authorities in Cleveland say they busted a wide-ranging heroin ring financed in part by drug dealers robbing each other.

Federal and local officials scheduled a news conference Wednesday afternoon to detail the case against 92 people charged with heroin trafficking and related crimes.

Court documents say dealers obtained heroin from sources in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland and elsewhere and sold it in the Cleveland area.

A 191-page federal indictment says traffickers financed some operations by robbing drug dealers and users who had showy cars and jewelry.

According to the indictment, dealers conducted counter-surveillance of law-enforcement officers and posted sentries to look out for police.

The attorney for an alleged ring leader defendant Keith Ricks declined to comment except to say he was reviewing the evidence against his client.
