A total of 27 people have been indicted as part of a drug-trafficking conspiracy in the Kansas City metro area.
Anthony D. Harris, 40, and Latrell O. Dean, 19, both of Grandview, Mo., and Seville S. Gardner, 37, were the three latest defendants charged in a 112-count indictment unsealed on Jan. 26.
