(Fargo, ND) — Just over two-dozen people are under indictment after what North Dakota U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley calls an “unprecedented” drug trafficking bust on three Native American reservations in the state. Operation Blue Prairie has been investigating oxycodone trafficking activity out of Detroit that transported about two-and-a-half-million dollars’ worth of the drug for distribution on or near the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation, Spirit Lake Indian Reservation, and Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The defendants in the case have been indicted on charges of drug conspiracy, money laundering, and narcotic trafficking-related charges.
