The Mountain Region Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force has "been working underground" since last year, U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld said Monday at a press conference that took place at the federal building in Elkins.

The work of the task force led to last week's indictment of the following individuals by a federal grand jury sitting in Martinsburg, Ihlenfeld said.

They include:
