— Cumberland County authorities say they have arrested four men in connection with what could be a statewide drug ring.

Authorities have arrested Isidro Gomez, Humberto Ontiverdos, Demecio Ontiveros and Armando Avila. All four men face a long list of federal drug charges, and authorities say more could be charged.

In a press conference Tuesday night, Sheriff Earl Butler said deputies have seized two kilos of powder cocaine with a street value of $200,000. He said authorities have also seized two cars.

The State Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration assisted in the investigation.
