U.S. Attorney David B. Fein said 20 people were arrested in the investigation -- 16 on Monday and Tuesday -- of a drug ring involving a trafficker who made more than 65 trips via car or airplane from Florida to Connecticut in less than a year, carrying up to 8,000 pills of the powerful painkiller oxycodone each trip.
