“Fighting heroin and opioid abuse has been one of my top priorities as attorney general, and the cooperation and collaboration in this case shows that Northern Virginia shares that commitment,” Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring said in a statement. “Enforcement is an important part of our comprehensive strategy, alongside robust prevention, education, and treatment resources for those who are battling addiction or may be at risk of abusing heroin or prescription drugs. I’m proud to be part of the team that has broken up this well-financed, well-organized trafficking operation that was putting Virginians and Virginia communities at risk.”

Additional charges are still pending.

Police said the cases will be prosecuted jointly by the City of Alexandria Commonwealth’s Attorney and the Office of the Virginia Attorney General.
