CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — U.S. Marshals have arrested sixteen people allegedly involved in an operation to distribute heroin and cocaine.

The U.S. Marshals Service worked with various agencies to arrest the individuals, including 11 people around Morgantown, five people in Detroit and one person in Maryland:

— Kyle Alexander Martin, 33, of Morgantown.
— Kenneth Burns, 34, of Morgantown.
— Jeremy Hamlin, 41, of Morgantown.
— Candis Sanders, 38, of Morgantown.

“It should slow, at least this organization that these individuals were involved with, from bringing narcotics from the Detroit, Michigan area to West Virginia,” Supervisory Deputy Marshal Terry Moore said.

U.S. Marshals are looking for 40-year-old Candice Marie Adams, of Morgantown. Anyone with information is asked to call 304-623-0486.
