19 Action News has obtained federal court documents showing how a multi-state drug ring put heroin and cocaine on your streets.

The records shed new light on a bust Tuesday evening at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and how it helped break up the pipeline.

On Tuesday evening, a plane from California landed and investigators arrested a passenger -- a Cleveland man. He is now facing charges with others in a ring bringing heroin and cocaine from California to Cleveland and western Pennsylvania.

Federal agents spent months listening to phone calls and watching suspects.

Records show investigators tracked the suspects in northeast Ohio to East 156th Street in Cleveland and to lakeshore in Euclid.

Lionel Cannon, of Cleveland, was arrested, plus two men in western Pennsylvania, and at least one in California.
