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 snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments. "We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson. Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's. "We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent. The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants. "For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent. "We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth. Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
