Eighteen Colorado Springs residents are federally indicted for drugs.

Eight more people are facing state charges. Authorities say they're part of the Tovar Organization. Authorities say they've seized nearly 5-million dollars worth of drugs, including methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana. The arrests come after a 14-month investigation.

The suspects are accused of keeping stash houses near schools and using juveniles to sell. Authorities believe they were bringing drugs in from California, Arizona and Mexico.

Authorities are still looking for three suspects. They are Joseph Bright, Demetrio Salazar Isiordia, and Juan Manuel Tovar-Ramirez.

If you the know the whereabouts of these three men call police.
