— Another suspect involved in a cocaine ring has been arrested, according to Beloit police.

Marquell Hardnett, 23, Beloit, was arrested Tuesday morning after turning himself in on federal charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute April 1.


He previously was considered a fugitive.


Local and federal authorities arrested 10 others last week. They face charges including conspiracy to distribute cocaine, distribution of cocaine and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.


The arrests came after an 18-month investigation by the Rock County Safe Streets Task Force.
