Portland, Oregon Man Arrested For Drug Ring

A Portland, Oregon, man is accused of orchestrating a powdered fentanyl ring that led to an overdose death in North Dakota.

Authorities say 40-year-old Brandon Hubbard sold the synthetic drug that killed 18-year-old Bailey Henke, of Grand Forks, in January.

Authorities say he admitted his involvement in the “large scale distribution” of fentanyl and bought $1.5 million worth of the narcotics in November alone.

Hubbard is facing drug several charges in federal court.
