BALTIMORE — Thirteen alleged members of a drug organization face charges. On Thursday, Baltimore Police announced the arrests.

According to police, they were members of the major drug trafficking organization, The Back Block Bippers.

They're accused of distributing fentanyl and other narcotics.

This is the result of a two-month long investigation that began the investigation last December with a tip from the community.

"When I say we can't do it alone this is what i mean. When we have community participation this is the result," said Mayor Jack Young.

Police have also seized 18 guns, fentanyl, crack cocaine, cocaine and cash.

The department is still looking for seven other members of the organization. All 20 defendants face more than 50 charges and more than 900 years in prison collectively.
