PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted 11 people who were allegedly involved with a drug distribution ring that distributed crack cocaine, Oxycodone and marijuana.

Officials with the Arizona Attorney General's Office say a year-long investigation led by the Phoenix Police Department culminated this month when law enforcement agencies carried out multiple search warrants throughout the south Phoenix area.

Among those indicted are 46-year-old Charles Sam Riggins, Jr. and 40-year-old Rachelle Woodard, both of Phoenix.

Officers from several law enforcement agencies served 14 search warrants between Jan. 25 and Feb. 8.

Prosecutors say two of the 11 people indicted allegedly manufactured and sold the illegal drugs to several of the defendants.
