They are Shakur Miller, 23, David Edwards, 38, and Leroy Ostrander, 39, all of Racine County.

Those arrested include Kevin Robinson, 34, Rodolfo Lopez, 35, Jermichael Sykes, 32, Nicole Harmon, 34, Sara Aude, 30, and Katherine Fabio, 38, all of Racine County.

Charges have been filed against various members of the group include numerous counts of delivering heroin and maintaining a drug trafficking place, according to circuit court records.
