MADISON, Wis. — Nineteen people have pleaded guilty in a drug ring that authorities said trafficked 127 pounds of methamphetamine from the Minneapolis area to central Wisconsin communities over a three-year span.

U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil in Wisconsin said 14 of the suspects have been sentenced, and the remaining five will be sentenced over the next two months.

Authorities said the conspiracy operated from June 2013 to May 2016. The meth that was trafficked had a total estimated street value of $5.7 million.
