Dozen drug dealers busted in Northfield 03 Nov 11

A Northfield-based drug bust has netted twelve suspected drug dealers after a 16-month investigation by the Rice County Drug Task Force.

The alleged dealers, including suspects from Northfield, Belle Plaine, and Faribault, were taken into custody Tuesday evening.

The Faribault Daily News says all suspects are tied to a variety of illegal and prescription drug deals out of Greenvale Place Apartments in Northfield. Investigators believe the suspects were operating individually, not in tandem.

Official charges from the Rice County Attorney’s Office are expected by tomorrow.
