Five charged with meth crimes in Northwest Wisconsin drug bust

Five individuals near the city of Washburn have been charged with a variety of crimes related to methamphetamine, including conspiracy to deliver and possession among others.  The bust was made after six law enforcement agencies including the Wisconsin Police Department and Division of Criminal Investigation teamed up to further investigate the crimes.  The arrests are a result of a year of separate investigation by the six departments.  When the departments were able to acquire two search warrants against the parties, they were able to conduct further investigations that ultimately led to the five arrests.

The five individuals who were arrested are facing different drug charges.  While four remain in prison, one individual has been released after posting bail.  The police said this is a move towards heavier enforcement of drug laws.
