Eight people are now facing federal drug trafficking charges for their alleged ties to an organization that funneled cocaine into Wayne, Stark and Tuscarawas counties. A federal grand jury indictment was unsealed this week following Tuesday’s arrests of several suspects in Wooster and Stark County. One of the suspects arrested this week was 40-year Arnulfo Gomez-Araiza, of Orrville, whose organization reportedly supplied cocaine to the three-county area for at least the past 15 years. All eight of the defendants have pleaded not guilty and remain in custody awaiting federal court appearances.
