The investigation revealed that the defendants conspired amongst themselves and with others, and distributed a large quantity of methamphetamine in the Fox Valley region of Northeastern Wisconsin. The defendants obtained methamphetamine from sources in the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Areas of California, who sent several packages containing a half-pound or more of methamphetamine to the defendants. The defendants also obtained methamphetamine directly from locations in Milwaukee and California. The defendants used a residence in Fox Crossing, and a business in Menasha, to repackage and transfer the methamphetamine to local distributors. Several controlled purchases and multiple search warrants led to the recovery of large quantities of methamphetamine, packaging material, drug ledgers, currency, ammunition, and firearms.

Chief Judge Griesbach noted the seriousness of the offenses the defendants committed, and remarked that the defendants caused immeasurable damage to the community through the sale and distribution of what he called “poison.”

The case was investigated by the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group-Drug Unit and US Drug Enforcement Administration, with assistance from the Appleton Police Department, Oshkosh Police Department, Menasha Police Department, Neenah Police Department, Fox Crossing Police Department, and the Wisconsin State Crime Laboratory. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.
