ONEIDA COUNTY - Nineteen people in Oneida County got busted in an investigation aimed at finding meth and prescription drug users and dealers.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office and the Northcentral Drug Enforcement Group have been investigating for at least two months.
They were finally able to make arrests during the last two weeks.
Undercover agents were able to buy drugs from some of the suspects.
That gave police enough evidence to make arrests.
"We received information from several different agencies. And when you have information that comes in from various sources, we try to act on that quickly. And especially in the case of the methamphetamine, we try and act on that very quickly," said Detective Sergeant Sara Gardner of the Oneida County Sheriff's Office.
Police believe the majority of these people are users, not dealers.
They think people who were dealing crystal meth got it from the southern part of the state.
Investigators say they've gotten helpful information from the people they arrested.
"Most of the interviews that we've conducted on the arrested parties have been very forthcoming as far as their information and have, I would say, been very cooperative," said Gardner.
Some of the suspects made their first appearances in court already.
Others will be in court next week.
Their names are below. Grant P Garrow (30) Chad M Laddusire (31) Corey W Harms (26) Mike A Mackey (26) Tammy L Groner (42) Theresa A Kennedy (28) Dareth L Bowman (36) Jovan E Salzman (24) Benjamin E Metz (27) Ryan R Novosed (36) Misty D Ehman (34) James S Erickson (65) Wendy L Hogan (54) Jimmie N Hogan (77) Kandy K Howard (49) Jessica J Steinmetz (36) Jenna R Bullard (33) Tabitha M Swenson (31) Alison M Keso (37)
MADISON (AP) - \Wisconsin dairy farmers have broken their streak of year-over-year production increases.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Wisconsin farmers produced about 2.5 billion pounds of milk last month, down 0.6 percent from 2017.
Bob Cropp is a professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the slowdown in production is good for milk prices. Prices have been low for three straight years because of an abundance of milk on the market.
The USDA report says there were 5,000 fewer cows in the state compared to last year.
Darin Von Ruden is president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union. He says farms that remained open faced cold and snowy conditions this spring.
Cropp says some experts believe milk prices may reach $17 per 100 pounds by November.
BEAVER DAM (AP) - Wisconsin Democratic voters are getting nervous over their large field of candidates running for governor.
The primary isn't until Aug. 14. No one has emerged as the clear front-runner ahead of next weekend's state convention. And no one is showing signs of dropping out.
Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is stockpiling resources and is in the middle of a $1.4 million TV ad campaign where he's run three ads unopposed touting his record.
Democrat Denise Hutchison, of Green Bay, says she hopes the field will narrow. She's optimistic that may happen after this weekend's state Democratic Party convention. But she also thinks whoever wins the primary will get the full support of Democratic voters.
