KINGSTON -- More than $50,000 worth of marijuana has landed five people behind bars in Luzerne County.
Kingston officers seized 12 pounds of pot, five guns, and over $44,000 in cash in Thursday's bust.
Police charged Matthew Klinges, 21, of Kingston; Matthew Mackiewicz, 18, of Forty Fort; and Jordan Stravolo, 22, of Kingston.
Authorities say the arrests were part of a two-month investigation into a marijuana distribution ring in the Kingston area that included selling the drugs to high school students.
Rachel Rosario, 41, and her son Ruben Rosario, 19, both of Wilkes-Barre were arrested by Wilkes-Barre police in connection with the drug ring.
