Three Arrested in Heroin Bust

11 Jan News

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has secured federal indictments against three subjects involved in the distribution of drugs in North Central Wisconsin.

In early December the Federal Magistrate in the US District Court Madison issued warrants for the arrests of: 32 year old Leanna Marie Wells and 47 year old Jennifer Lynn Roper, both of Merrill; and 32 year old Rose Helen Kirmsse of Black Creek and formerly of Merrill. They were delivered to the US Marshal at Madison the following day by Lincoln County Deputies.

The three are facing charges including: possession with intent to distribute heroin, distributing heroin, and conspiracy to distribute heroin.

 Law enforcement officers in Lincoln County continue to work with state and federal authorities and are expecting additional state, and possibly federal charges may be introduced against others involved in the drug trade. This is all a part of the ongoing effort by law enforcement in Lincoln County to combat drugs and drug related crimes in our community.

If you have any information on use, sales, or distribution of narcotics in Lincoln County you are encouraged to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office or crimestoppers.
