Federal authorities say they have broken up a drug trafficking ring that dealt heroin and methamphetamine in Alaska and laundered the group's profits.

Agents arrested two of the 11 alleged drug dealers in Anchorage, according to the Alaska U.S. Attorney's Office. The other nine defendants named in the 36-count indictment, handed up in mid-April, were arrested in California.

According to the indictment, members of the drug ring conspired to deal 100 grams or more of heroin and 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. The drug deals occurred between April 2012 and April 2013 in Alaska and California, according to the indictment, which does not list specific amounts for each alleged deal.

According to the indictment, the defendants are:

• Kyle Wilson, 24, of Chugiak

• Phillip "Cheddar" Dixon Jr., 28, of Manteca, Calif.

• George "Nino" Little, 23, of Stockton

• Gloria Sarinana, 27, of Stockton

• Justin Fisher, 28, of Stockton

• Marcos Diaz, 25, of Stockton

• Norris Drummond Jr., 21, of Stockton

• Cesar Serna, 23, of Stockton

• Anthony "Ray" Mixon, 19, of Stockton

• Harry "Paulie" Hawkins III, 33, of Stockton

Agents apprehended Wilson and Little in Anchorage, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a written statement. The rest were arrested in California. So far, only Little has entered a plea -- not guilty -- in the case, according to federal court records.
