CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Local and federal authorities rounded up members of a fentanyl drug ring based in Avondale and Bond Hill on Monday.

Ten suspected fentanyl traffickers were apprehended, and another four suspects remain on the run, according to Cincinnati police.

Authorities seized 250 grams of fentanyl, $15,000 in cash and four guns, police said in a Tweet.

That's a lot of fentanyl, 9 ounces, law enforcement officials say.

There are 28 grams in an ounce, and you can get high 3-4 times on a gram. The street value of 250 grams of fentanyl when it's mixed with heroin, which is mostly what it's used for, is just shy of $40,000.

CPD teamed up with the Hamilton County Heroin Coalition Task Force, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The suspects arrested: Chaz Jones, Edmond Hurt, Ari Hodges, Davonte Walker, Christopher Mathews, Sherica Shields, Thomesha Walker, Kierra Thomas, Rajah Swain and Shonda Jones, police said.

Still at large: Keysean Dickey, Dominic Davis, Da'Marco Browner and Mykeal Parker.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers: 513-352-3040.
