Six Kewaunee County arrests were among the more than two dozen made this week in a Door/Kewaunee Drug Task Force investigation into the sale and delivery of prescription medication, heroin, and marijuana in the area.
In addition to these charges, arrests were made on charges of party to the crime along with maintaining a drug trafficking place and delivery within 1000 feet of a school and/or park, Sheriff Matt Joski announced Tuesday night.
Information regarding the identity and correlating charges of those involved will be released once law enforcement has completed this specific investigation, Joski said.
Authorities announced Monday that the arrests followed an eight-month investigation into an extensive drug trafficking operation. At least 21 arrests had been made in Door County by Tuesday evening.
The Task Force was assisted in this investigation by the Door County SWAT Team, Sturgeon Bay Police Department, DEA, Wisconsin State Patrol and Kewaunee Police Department K-9 units and the Brussels Fire Department, said Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle.
The investigation will continue with more arrests expected, the two sheriffs said.
CORRECTION: The original version of this story indicated that the six Kewaunee County arrests were among those announced in Door County earlier in the week. The local arrests are in addition to the Door arrests.
