KLAMATH FALLS (AP) — A Klamath County grand jury has returned indictments against 47 people in last week’s drug raids in Klamath County. The indictments handed up Tuesday show 28 people indicted on racketeering charges, which allege they were part of a criminal enterprise dating to last October that was devoted to selling methamphetamine. District Attorney Rob Patridge says those facing racketeering charges could be sentenced to as much as 18 years in prison if convicted.

Fifteen people are facing drug charges, alleging they sold or possessed methamphetamine.

Four people were indicted on prostitution charges along with drug charges.

Some 300 police made a series of pre-dawn raids last week, primarily in rural parts of Klamath County, rounding up what authorities called a ring dealing in methamphetamine and guns.
