Three Milwaukee residents charged after undercover drug sting in Washington County

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- On Thursday the Washington County drug enforcement group arrested three Milwaukee residents after an investigation of purchases of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and ecstasy. 

The suspects were arrested in commercial parking lots. One of the three was released without charges and a fourth is still being sought. 

Germantown Police and Washington County Sheriff's Deputies assisted in the arrests. Officers from Milwaukee's District 4 seized a car directly involved in prior drug deliveries.

When they were arrested the suspects were delivering 9 grams of heroin to an undercover police officer for $1,250. Officers also found an additional 3.7 grams of heroin and 3.7 grams of fentanyl in the car and three stolen guns from Richfield, Milwaukee and La Crosse were found from the suspects.

Washington County Sheriff Dale Schmidt says the seized quantities were enough for 164 individual doses.

The two suspects ages 25 and 29 are being held in Washington County jail awaiting charges related to drug delivery and possession of stolen guns.
