Crandon - For the last six months, the Forest County Narcotics Task force gathered evidence.

Now arrests have come.

16 people have been taken into custody.

Arrest warrants have been issued for another three people.

Investigators bought drugs with the help of confidential informants. The buys included cocaine, marijuana and prescription narcotics.

They got the drugs from several people in Forest County, as well as from suppliers outside of the county.

Those already arrested come from both Crandon and Wabeno.

Warrants are out for residents of Milwaukee and Bonduel.
