A federal grand jury in New Haven, Conn., indicted 27 suspects on charges of laundering more than $200 million in illegal drug money, halting profits to "some very big drug dealers," a U.S. attorney said. The 216-count indictment charges the defendants with racketeering, money-laundering and conspiracy to help several worldwide drug trafficking organizations distribute cocaine in the United States. U.S. Atty. Stanley A. Twardy Jr. said 14 of the suspects had been arrested by Wednesday afternoon.
