Sep 27 2017

MADISON, Wis. – Today, the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) partnered with local and federal law enforcement and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin to apprehend 12 individuals in southeastern Wisconsin in a long-term federal drug and money laundering investigation based out of Milwaukee.

 

Attorney General Brad Schimel congratulated DCI agents and partner agencies on the success of the investigation.

 

“Heroin, cocaine, and other dangerous drugs are responsible for the destruction of countless lives in Wisconsin. Today’s takedown of major drug traffickers in southeastern Wisconsin is a big win for law enforcement, the community, and those seeking justice from the drug crisis our state is facing. The arrest of these high-level drug traffickers was only possible because of the incredible investigative work done by local, state, and federal law enforcement.”
