NEW YORK (WABC) -- 13 people are charged with funneling heroin into New York City on Metro-North commuter trains.
The alleged kingpin, Brian Bacon, is charged with operating as a major trafficker and could face life in prison.
He's accused of distributing up to a kilo of heroin every month through a network of dealers in upstate New York, Long Island and Pennsylvania.
Authorities say the suspects transported the heroin under their seats on Metro-North commuter trains from Harlem to Beacon.
The arrests were carried out by the state police and the state attorney general's office.
