The U.S. Attorney's Office filed charges Wednesday against 14 suspects who investigators say were involved in an international cocaine trafficking ring.

The indictment charges the 14 with conspiracy to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine and more than 280 grams of cocaine base, or crack cocaine, from Nov. 2010 through June 2012.

If convicted, the suspects face a minimum of 10 years in prison on the conspiracy charge.
