Eleven people are accused of selling cocaine in Philadelphia and the suburbs. Three are from Montgomery County and three from Bucks County, including 32-year-old Matthew Bertagni of Feasterville (pictured here), who allegedly headed one of two rings that Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett calls separate but similar. He says agents who raided his home and his mother’s home found drugs, a handgun with two loaded magazines and more than $18,000 in cash. A grand jury presentment says 37-year-old John Dzizera and his 30-year-old wife Victoria Salisbury, both of Levittown, bought cocaine from him and sold it at local bars. The alleged leader of the other ring is 30-year-old Nicholas Fatiga of Philadelphia. The grand jury says 33-year-old Brian Brown of Horsham, 30-year-old Christopher Cole of Hatboro and 30-year-old Michael Riff of Hatboro regularly bought cocaine from him for re-sale in their areas. The defendants will be prosecuted in Montgomery County.
