Drug Bust

By  | 

22 people face charges after officers seized cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and guns headed for this region.
The Monroe County Sheriff tells us Tomah was at the center of the drug ring. Police officers there say they worked with state and federal agents, State Patrol, Black River Falls police, the Jackson County Sheriff's Department and the Monroe County Sheriff's department. All of the suspects are in the Monroe County jail.
The arrests represent the end of a year-long investigation into the ring, which had been moving drugs from Chicago and Madison into Monroe and Jackson counties. Felony and misdemeanor charges are being filed against the 22 suspects. Investigators say there could be more arrests.
