BOSTON — Federal authorities say 10 men have been arrested in an interstate opioid trafficking ring in Maine, Massachusetts and Florida.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston said Thursday a three-year investigation led to the arrests.

Gorky Gonzalez, 24, of Biddeford is among the 10 who face charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin or 40 grams or more of fentanyl and money laundering.

Prosecutors say that beginning in 2014, the men transported large quantities of opioids from Miami to Massachusetts and Maine for distribution. They say profits from the sale of the drugs were transferred back to Florida to be laundered.
