FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in the Fond du Lac area have made another major drug bust.
18 people were arrested in connection with drug trafficking operations on Wednesday. Authorities confiscated heroin, cocaine, marijuana and other narcotics from several homes, including one tied to a previous drug bust.
Fond du Lac police got help from the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group Drug Unit to make this the 5th significant drug bust since August.
Fond du Lac Police Chief Bill Lamb says, "It is frustrating for our officers to continue to have to deal with these same drug dealers time after time, so we can only imagine how frustrating it must be for the good people in that neighborhood that have had the police department make three different drug arrests at the same house in their neighborhood in the past four months. The police department’s message to the good people in that neighborhood is that we will continue to aggressively investigate and arrest those individuals who are involved in dealing illegal drugs in our community.”
