More than twenty arrests were made in a large drug bust in Lac du Flambeau.
The sweeping raids were carried out in early yesterday morning and involved more than 40 officers. The ongoing investigation was looking at synthetic and prescription drug trafficking on the reservation.
Tom Maulson, Chairman of the Lac du Flambeau band said, “We made it clear to our community that we would take on those who use and sell drugs on our reservation. Hopefully the actions of our law enforcement community send a strong message that drug use is not acceptable on our lands.”
The cooperative and ongoing effort, codenamed “Operation Pandora” includes 11 law enforcement agencies.
