14 People Charged With Running Heroin Delivery Service In Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Fourteen people have been charged with running a pizza delivery-style drug ring out of Los Angeles that used a fleet of cars to fill telephone orders for heroin and cocaine.

Authorities arrested the alleged manager of Manny's Delivery Service and six other people Wednesday and seized 14 pounds of heroin.

Seven other people are being sought.

A federal indictment issued Tuesday alleges that the ring kept bulk narcotics in a stash house in the San Fernando Valley and filled small orders by having customers meet delivery vehicles at various locations.

Prosecutors also contend that the ring sold larger quantities of drugs as well.

The criminal charges include conspiracy and possessing drugs for distribution. Some of the charges carry a potential life sentence.
