INDIANAPOLIS — The leader of a large drug ring in Indianapolis has been sentenced to more than 23 years in prison.

Kenyatta Ray, who went by the nickname “Picasso,” organized the distribution of meth and cocaine, to and from Los Angeles and Indianapolis. Starting in 2019, Ray, a part-time tattoo artist, would sell the illegal drugs to customers, not realizing they were actually undercover federal agents. Then, the DEA raided the house and the tattoo shop, finding the cocaine and meth, along with multiple guns.

Ray was sentenced Monday. The accomplices, Amanda Rodriguez and John Michael Griffin, had already been sentenced for their part in the distribution.
