ANCHORAGE (AP) Four Anchorage residents were indicted this week on charges of selling crack cocaine and laundering the proceeds, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Lidia L. Ortiz, Marco A. Rivera, Mirna Lara-Zalaya and Robert H. Gould were charged with conspiring to sell at least $11,500 worth of crack. They face varying charges of drug trafficking and money laundering.

According to the indictment, from Jan. 10, 2001, to May 29, 2003, the group sold crack in amounts ranging from 1 to 54 grams.

Ortiz and Rivera were charged with using money from drug sales to buy a 2002 Honda Civic, according to the indictment.
