LAC DU FLAMBEAU - A married couple from Lac Du Flambeau face a total of nine charges in connection to keeping and selling prescription drugs.
They could spend more than 30 years in federal prison if convicted of maximum sentences, according to a Department of Justice press release.
Charlie Sunn Meshigaud, 25, and Andrew Meshigaud, 28, face charges in federal court.
Police believe the two kept and planned on selling Oxycodone between January and June 2013.
Charlie Sunn Meshigaud is accused of selling the drug in May 2013.
Counts three through nine against the couple charge both of them with unlawfully using wire communications, MoneyGram, as part of the crime.
Andrew Meshigaud is in the Vilas County Jail, while Charlie Sunn Meshigaud was found and arrested in Milwaukee Thursday.
The indictment is one of four connected to Oxycodone distribution in Lac Du Flambeau.
Lois Vetterneck, Brandon Vetterneck, and Derek Armstrong also face charges for distributing Oxycodone in Lac du Flambeau. All three have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing this summer.
The charges against the Meshigauds come from an investigation from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, the Lac du Flambeau Police Department, the Vilas County Sheriffs Department and the Oneida County Sheriffs Office.
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander couple thought they were empty nesters. However, an experience volunteering made them open their doors back up to kids who need a temporary home. The Zoerb's adult children moved out years ago. But at any moment they could get a call from social services that make them bring out their parenting skills for another round. Rick and Danielle Zoerb work together as realtors putting people in homes that are the perfect fit. However, the husband and wife know their home can be a good fit for others too. "There's no reason for kids to have to fall through the cracks," said Dani. Rick met a child at a mentorship program a few years ago. It was a meeting that opened a new door for him and his wife. "There was no hesitation on our part when we felt the situation was deteriorating for this young boy," said Rick.
