The La Crosse Police Department arrested 56-year-old Daniel Lee Halverson of Caledonia Aug. 28 in La Crosse where he was found to be in possession of 18 grams of methamphetamine.
Halverson was transported to Houston County where he remains in custody on felony level charges for first degree sale of methamphetamine.
Halverson is alleged to have made two previous sales of meth earlier in August in Houston County. One sale was for 3.7 ounces of meth and the second sale was for 17 grams.
Another Caledonia resident, 31-year-old Andrew James Roach, is in custody at the Houston County Jail on charges of fourth degree sale of a narcotic. This stems from his alleged involvement in two previous Houston County sales of methamphetamine in connection with Halverson.
Roach has two previous convictions for controlled substance crimes and currently has one case pending for felony controlled substance crimes in Houston County.
According to Houston County Sheriff Mark Inglett, this was the result of good police work by the drug task force in putting this case together and great cooperation between Houston County Sheriff’s Office and La Crosse Police Department.
