LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – La Crosse Police report their second major drug bust this week alone.
Officers raided the home at 1435 Caledonia St. on Wednesday, breaking up a drug dealing operation.
Police found 26 individual baggies containing 16 grams of heroin. A search of a safe turned up $5,000 in cash along with another 75 grams of heroin and fentanyl. The drugs had a street value of over $13,000.
Police arrested 40-year-old David Wims, whom police say is well known to the criminal justice system and was out on bond for methamphetamine delivery charges at the time of this latest arrest.
Capt. Jason Melby says, “This is not a person selling to support their own habit. This is a for-profit drug dealer. These are individuals who are selling this stuff in our community.”
Earlier this week, La Crosse police made another major drug bust. Combined, the two turned up 96 grams of heroin and fentanyl along with ecstasy pills, $12,000 in cash and a handgun.
