HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (WCBS 880) -- Authorities on Long Island have taken down a multi-million dollar drug ring.

An indictment has charged 19 people with distributing heroin, cocaine and opioid pills across Long Island and New York City, causing at least three overdose deaths.

"We know these people have killed people," said Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini.

Most of the defendants are Bloods gang members and the alleged ringleader, Sheron Davis,  called himself "Money Ron," Sini said.

"They also manufactured narcotics for distribution, including cooking crack-cocaine and pressing pills, which are counterfeit opioids made of dangerous and lethal controlled substances crafted to look like pharmaceutically manufactured," Sini said.

They also used a Toyota Camry with hidden drug compartments underneath the front seats that would be opened by pressing the rear defrost button, WCBS 880's Sophia Hall reported.

Their drug houses were in Freeport and Hempstead, authorities said.
