39 People Charged In Circleville Drug Ring

Investigators in Circleville and Pickaway County and the Ohio Attorney General's office say 22 people face heroin trafficking charges, and another 17 suspects are charged with trafficking crack cocaine, painkillers or methamphetamine. Authorities filed the charges Wednesday. They say heroin dealers are filling a gap left by previous crackdowns on illegal prescription drug sales in Circleville. State figures show there are 11 heroin overdose deaths a week.
