A drug bust by the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department Thursday has led to the discovery of $26,000 worth of narcotics.

The bust comes on the heels of a traffic stop on Hwy. 53 and Arneson Ridge Road where a driver was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

Further investigation led to the Galesville residence of the driver Kenneth W. Caldwell, 33, where a search warrant was conducted.

Found on the property were 65 grams (2.3 ounces) of heroin and 4.3 grams of methamphetamine, authorities said.
