Authorities have arrested 11 Western Massachusetts men on federal indictments accusing them of distributing illegal drugs. The US attorney’s office in Boston said Friday that the arrests came after a drug task force investigation of heroin and cocaine trafficking in Holyoke. Two of the men also face illegal firearms charges. Ten of the men arrested are from Holyoke and one is from Springfield. An FBI affidavit filed in the case alleges that one of those charged, Francisco Diaz, 34, was a local leader of the La Familia street gang who headed a drug distribution operation in South Holyoke.
