A collaboration between Cincinnati Police, the FBI and the IRS helped put an end to a major drug-trafficking ring Thursday.

Christopher Whitfield, Steve Griffin, Tonia Whitfield, and Icierra Martin-Bronson pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court Thursday to various trafficking charges.

The three were arrested in April of last year, after a series of raids that found large amounts of cocaine, heroin, seven firearms and $1 million.

Agents also seized: three properties in Cincinnati, five vehicles including two luxury vehicles and a motorcycle, multiple pieces of jewelry, Gucci and Rolex watches, two ballistic vests, a number of “mink” fur coats and vests, 13 designer handbags and Beats headphones and ear buds.

All four suspects could face a minimum of 20 years in prison when sentenced.
