JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio ---
 
After a two-month drug investigation, the Jefferson County Drug Task Force along with the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force charged four people with trafficking heroin on Tuesday.
 
Those arrested include, Darrion Jackson, Ron Leftridge (a.k.a. Moe, Fat Boy) Donnell Gardner Jr. and Rachael Vasconellos.
 
Officials said their investigation revealed that the three men are all from Chicago and associated with the Black Disciples and/or Black Stone Rangers Gang.

On Tuesday, search warrants were conducted at 825 Roswell Avenue and 433 S. Fifth St. in Steubenville.
 
From those residences, officials seized 10 grams of heroin, 23 grams of marijuana, approximately $17,128 in cash, and four firearms, which officials said may be linked to a recent burglary in Weirton.
 
Officials are still investigating the identification of the firearms.
