Law-enforcement officials announced the bust Wednesday involving suspects who call themselves the Lakeshore Boyz Gang, operating in Cleveland and Euclid.

The charges include heroin trafficking counts against three suspects charged in federal court and 29 facing trial in state courts.

Prosecutors say many alleged heroin sales took place within 1,000 yards of a school, increasing the possible sentence.
