Throughout the investigation more than 150 grams of heroin, 7 grams of crack cocaine and thousands of dollars in cash were seized. The heroin seized during the investigation represents 1,500 bindles and has a street value of $30,000 to $60,000. Also participating in the past year’s investigation was the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Fond du Lac County District Attorney’s Office.
