This investigation has revealed drug ties directly back to the Mexican Drug Cartels. This is a disturbing reality that major drug operations south of our country’s southern border are having a direct impact on drug use and overdoses here in Wisconsin.
Sheriff Dale Schmidt is very concerned, as our community should be, that these drugs are moving to Dodge County and all of Wisconsin in quantities and in frequency that we have never seen before. It is having deadly consequences for our community and is very much impacting the lives and mental health of our community.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with all police agencies in Dodge County, will continue to pursue these deadly drugs and dealers. We are very proud of the exemplary work of our entire team as they have been making significant impacts with recent arrests.
Unfortunately, until something is done to cut off the source of these drugs at the southern border, it will be a difficult uphill battle for our law enforcement efforts in Dodge County.
However, dealers will know that in Dodge County, we will hold them accountable, and we will work through the justice system to put them in prison.
