CLEVELAND — Three people, who were among the 17 people indicted on federal charges for their roles in conspiracy to bring heroin, fentanyl and cocaine into the Northeast Ohio area from California, remain at-large, according to an updated release from the FBI Cleveland Division.

Freddie Murphy, 33, of Cleveland, Darcell Jackson, 32, of Euclid, and Antonn Melton, 37, of Maple Heights, are still at large after a team of federal law enforcement officers conducted an operation before dawn on Tuesday to arrest more than a dozen people who all allegedly played a role in using domestic shipping to bring drugs from California to sell in Cleveland.

The FBI Cleveland Division says tips can remain anonymous and all tips can be forwarded to the FBI at 216-522-1400 or the U.S. Marshals at 866-4WANTED.

Reward money is available for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the three individuals.
