EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Three people arrested after what police say was a drug deal gone bad, are now charged.

Emily Turk, 34, Phillip Geissler, 38, and April Laganse, 40, all of Eau Claire, are facing several different counts in Eau Claire County.

The criminal complaint says Turk told investigators she met with Geissler at a gas station and gave him money for meth. Geissler told her he was going to go get the meth and never returned.

The complaint says Turk then got a Facebook message from Laganse, using Geissler's Facebook account, saying "B-- you just got f--ed."
Turk tried to send a message back, but was blocked.

The complaint says Turk found out Geissler's address on Jeffers Road and showed up at his home with a loaded gun.

Laganse was there with Geissler, and began fighting with Turk over the gun. That's when police were called and they arrested the three.

Laganse later told investigators she initiated the "drug rip off."
She said she was "ripped off" by Turk in the past, so she came up with the idea because she was mad.
