Eau Claire man charged with 30 counts after drug bust

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- An Eau Claire man has been charged with 30 charges tied to an undercover drug bust.

Court documents show 37-year-old Joshua Hawkins has been charged with charges such as manufacture/deliver heroin (repeater), felony bail jumping (repeater), possession with intent to deliver heroin (repeater) and maintaining a drug trafficking place (repeater).

In a criminal complaint, authorities lay out two controlled purchases of heroin last month from Hawkins at his home. These two purchases totaled nearly $500.
