Two Drug Busts in Southwestern Wisconsin

Two drug operations are shut down this week, the first involving nearly two dozen people.

Police have busted 22 people for running a drug ring in Western Wisconsin.

Federal, state, and local law enforcement made the arrests yesterday in Juneau, Jackson, Monroe and Dane Counties.

They seized cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and guns. The suspects face felony drug trafficking charges and other misdemeanors.

The second bust involves a man from Brodhead. Ronald Roberson is being held in Green County on charges of manufacturing huge amounts of marijuana.

Members from the State Line Area Narcotics Team seized more than 200 suspected marijuana plants and other drug paraphernalia.

The plants are thought to be worth as much as $115,000.
