A federal grand jury indicted seven men on charges of running a national cocaine and crack ring that allegedly supplied drugs to street gangs in South Los Angeles, the U.S. attorney's office announced this week. Two of those men and an eighth suspect were indicted for conspiring to distribute PCP, and one of them also is charged with beating a government informant with a tire iron. Another defendant was indicted on a separate count of distributing crack cocaine.
