A situation recently developed in another state that resulted in many arrests. Some officials have commented that the federal drug case has brought down a major heroin ring in the area.

Being formally accused of a crime may adversely affect one's reputation.

In Pennsylvania and other states, when situations include both state and federal charges, the state charges may be dismissed in order to more aggressively pursue the federal charges, which usually carry more severe sentences.

Investigators say the disbanded drug trafficking ring moved narcotics valued in the millions of dollars.
