The spokesman said the attorney's office dropped charges against Fernando Ramos-Meza, Peter Martin, Javier Lopez and Juan Daniel Valdez Mendoza so the U.S. Attorney's Office could take over the case. 

According to authorities, agents from the Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force seized 170.98 pounds of methamphetamine in Minneapolis on Sept. 11.

The seizure was part of an ongoing trafficking investigation that began in January, originating in the task force's jurisdiction.
