Eight of the 19 suspects were arrested this morning, four were already in custody and one turned themself in.
Among those in custody include the two alleged leaders of the drug ring, Crawford Bogle and Savon Pope.
While the operation was based in Dayton, Glassman said it extended into other communities, including Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia and Arizona.
“This kind of activity involving fentanyl and other drugs is deadly activity,” said Glassman.
“We’ve got this full organization here,” he said. “I think it’s fair to say it’s among the most significant drug trafficking organizations in this region, but we’re not going to stop until we have the ultimate sources of supply wherever they may be.”
An alleged narcotics conspiracy in the Dayton-area has resulted with 19 people facing federal charges, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
