The search warrant in Slinger was served by the Washington County Drug Task Force, with assistance from the Slinger Police Department, and seized 15.4 grams of crack cocaine, 1045.3 grams of marijuana, 99.4 grams of multi-colored/shaped pills which field tested positive for fentanyl, $22,004 in U.S. currency and two illegally possessed firearms (handguns).
Several seizures in Washington County during the investigation leading up to the arrest totaled an additional 43.43 grams of crack cocaine.
During the course of May 11, six people in total were arrested for their involvement in this drug conspiracy. Four individuals remained in custody at that time and two others were subsequently released. The two indicted men were turned over to the US Marshalls and remain in federal custody pending trial. Follow up investigation continues with more indictments expected.
Sheriff Martin R. Schulteis responded to the investigation stating, “Multi-jurisdictional investigations such as these demonstrate that criminal operations know no borders, and law enforcement seamlessly works together to hold those accountable that bring this poison into our communities; one badge, one mission.”
The Washington County Drug Task Force is staffed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the West Bend Police Department, the Germantown Police Department and the Kewaskum Police Department.
