The leader of a drug trafficking ring that brought heroin to Minnesota and North Dakota Indian reservations has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Red Lake Police Department’s Public Safety Director William Brunelle said: “The successful cooperation and outstanding partnership of both tribal and federal agencies has clearly demonstrated a precise and orchestrated strike against drug dealers in Indian Country. Today’s sentence sends a strong message that tribal lands are no place to sell your drugs.”
