A man from South Bend is accused of being a drug kingpen in Fort Wayne.

Police believe Kwan Ware, 49, was responsible for bringing meth into Ft. Wayne and having it distributed out of an apartment.

Jamie Derkatsch, 49, is accused of being the main salesperson.

Another woman, Erin Holbrook, 49, was also arrested as a conspirator. Police said it took them about a month to get enough evidence to bust the drug ring.

They said Ware would stay at AirBnBs to avoid police because he already had warrants out for his arrest.
