The Door/Kewaunee Drug Task Force has been involved in a series of drug interdiction raids in Door County in December, primarily in the Sturgeon Bay area. According to Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle, the drug enforcement group began its operation on December 8th by executing a search warrant at an apartment in the 400 block of North 7th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. Two men, ages 20 and 23 were arrested for delivery of marijuana, delivery of MDMA, commonly referred to as “Molly”, maintaining a drug house, and, possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Nine days later, the drug task force used a search warrant to enter a home off County HH, in the Town of Sevastopol. Inside they found a marijuana growing operation. A man and a woman, ages 22 and 21, were taken into custody. They face possible charges of manufacture and delivery of marijuana, and, delivery and possession of MDMA with intent to deliver. A day later, a search warrant was executed at a residence off Cherry Boulevard in the Town of Gardner on early Wednesday morning. A 23-year old was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. The final drug bust happened early Wednesday morning in Sturgeon Bay as part of a “buy bust operation” involving the distribution of heroin. A 23-year old Sturgeon Bay woman faces charges of conspiracy to deliver heroin and possession of heroin with intent to deliver. The woman’s 26-year old boyfriend, already in custody on three related drug charges, will have three counts of delivering heroin to a confidential informant added to the list of charges he will face.
All of the suspects were jailed and the list of infractions referred to the Door County District Attorney for the filing of possible charges. Their day in court is expected in the near future. Sheriff Delarwelle commended the officers and investigators who participated in multiple drug operations this month. The Door/Kewaunee Drug Task Force consists of members of the Door and Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Departments and Sturgeon Bay Police.
