Police throughout Wisconsin are diligent in their efforts to enforce state and federal drug laws. In some cases, police operatives even go undercover to arrange drug deals that may lead to an arrest.
In a recent case like this, four women were taken into custody on meth charges in Arcadia. According to the Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office, the women have been accused of selling methamphetamine. The arrests took place as a part of an undercover operation on Sept. 10. The arrested women were 38, 41, 47 and 50 years of age.
The Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office conducted the covert operation, which involved an undercover operative who allegedly purchased meth from one of the women. Three additional women who were in the first woman's care were also arrested.
After the sale, police carried out an investigation of the woman's car with a K-9 unit on scene. The K-9 unit alleged discovered 50 milligrams of illegal meth in the car. Next, police conducted another search of a hotel room that was connected to the women.
Even though police expend a great deal of time and resources to tracking down alleged drug crime violators, they do not always accuse the correct people of crimes. For this reason, every drug crimes defendant has the opportunity to refute his or her charges and defend him or herself in court. If you were accused inappropriately of a drug crime in Wisconsin, you will remain innocent of the charges until, and only if, the prosecution can prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
