NEW HAVEN ó Authorities busted an alleged heroin trafficking ring last week, resulting in the arrests of 11 members, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

"Operation Oceanfront," a long-term investigation by the DEA, used court-authorized wiretaps on phones of two members of the alleged drug organization. Court documents and statements say these members allegedly dispatched the groupís street-level heroin dealers to meet with heroin customers, federal authorities said in a statement.

The DEA intercepted thousands of calls allegedly pertaining to narcotics trafficking and made several controlled purchases of heroin during the investigation, the statement said.

The 11 suspects were arrested Oct. 27 and 28 and include: Moises Valentin-Candelaria, aka "Primo," 37, of Ocean Avenue, and Blas Zayas, aka "Boricua" and "Bori," 39, of First Avenue, both in West Haven; Saul Valentin, aka "Rally," 29, of State Street, Hamden; Ramon Vasquez, 32, of Hazelton, Penn.; and Felix Alberto Ramos, aka "Felix Vincente-Sanchez" and "Alberto," 35, of the Bronx, N.Y.

New Haven residents arrested were Angel Avila, aka "Melasa Avila" and "Rob," 28, of Ashmun Street; Randy Washington, aka "Pepe," 22, of County Street; Domingo Rosario, aka "Benito" and "Chiqui," 39, of Davenport Avenue; Robert Calo, aka "Papito," 50, of Chapel Street; Juan Hernandez, aka "Tony," 35, of Oakridge Drive; and Rafael Vizcarrondo, aka "Cafe," 54, of, Saltonstall Avenue.

If convicted, Candelaria, Vasquez, Avila and Ramos could face life sentences, Valentin, Hernandez and Zayas could face 40 years in prison, and Washington, Rosario, Calo and Vizcarrondo could face 20 years in prison, authorities said.
