ESPAÃ’OLA – A drug bust by Rio Arriba County sheriff’s deputies has netted a significant amount of black tar heroin, prescription medication and cash.

Deputies said they took 12 people into custody Friday during a raid of what was described as a regular meeting of drug traffickers at a home north of Española.

The deputies served a search warrant at a home shared by brother and sister Armando and Amanda Madrid. Sheriff Tommy Rodella said the family has been suspected of running drugs for decades.

The Madrids and four others have been charged with drug trafficking. Another woman was charged with drug possession and child abuse since she had her two children with her at the time of the raid.

Authorities say they had been planning the raid for about three weeks.
