Six months after nine Kewaunee County men were arrested following an eight-month investigation by the Door/Kewaunee Drug Task Force, five men have been sentenced and the other four cases continue to work their way through the system, with two due in court this week.
The criminal complaints filed in Kewaunee County Circuit Court indicate the arrests followed a series of arranged drug purchases from July through December involving heroin, cocaine, marijuana, prescription drugs and LSD.
