TOPEKA — Local and federal law enforcement authorities Wednesday announced the indictment of 54 people in a drug-trafficking ring in Manhattan.

That ring, with suppliers tracked back to Chicago, was responsible for distributing heroin, fentanyl, ecstasy, methamphetamine, hydrocodone, cocaine and marijuana in the Manhattan area, the authorities said. U.S. Attorney for Kansas Stephen McCallister called it the “largest takedown” his office had ever conducted.

Six dealers are charged in particular with causing the death in September 2017 of Maxwell F. Dandaneau, an 18-year-old student at Kansas State University, at an off-campus apartment.
