Four men are wanted on nationwide arrest warrants for dealing heroin and cocaine in La Crosse.

Police need the public’s help finding Tyrone Johnson, 37, Timothy Robinson, 26, Larry Baldwin, 46, and Nicholas House, 32. Authorities say they are in the Chicago area but frequent La Crosse.

The men are part of a drug trafficking conspiracy under investigation since early last year before La Crosse police made the first two arrests Sept. 24. Douglas Owens, 33, and wife Juanita Owens, 37, had $25,000 worth of drugs, including heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.

Five men involved in the case sold 18.4 grams of heroin and 5.6 grams of cocaine to police informants during 12 transactions in unspecified meeting spots between July 23, 2015, and Sept. 16, according to the complaint filed in La Crosse County Circuit Court.

Up to 37 grams of heroin and 63 grams of cocaine were observed but not purchased during the transactions.

Informants reported buying up to 284 grams of heroin and 3.5 grams of cocaine multiple times from the Owenses and dealers working for them in 2015 and this year, according to court records.

Local and state investigators witnessed 12 people sell drugs 85 times between Aug. 1 and Sept. 23 in the parking lot of the couple’s apartment at 1206 S. West Ave.

Deante House Sr., 30, is in jail in Kane County, Ill., on drug charges and wanted in La Crosse County as part of the conspiracy.

Additional arrests are expected.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Johnson, Robinson, Baldwin and Nicholas House is asked to call La Crosse police at 608-785-5962. Anonymous tips can be made to La Crosse Area Crime Stoppers at 608-784-TIPS or via text to 274637.

They are not that smart. They will get caught and we will pay to bring them back in handcuffs. One can run but can not hide from the internet.


I'm sure they are in hiding now and 'layin low with this great public tip-off.


The Robinson guy is on facebook posting and probably lives in the Englewood area in Chicago as he went to Robeson High School.


Most of the time they don't rent here at all. They live with desperate chicks looking for anyone that will like them.


Agree 100% they just live with a Desperate white chick & knock her up , to get mare welfare and why is the Lax cop's taking so long to try and arrest them ?? But oh boy you park on wrong side of street during winter parking and they get you right now !!

Yow! It took 85 pitches to get a single strike? That's not how it should work, people!

Local landlords, do a better job vetting your tenants: credit checks, references, et cetera. City Council, quit issuing approvals for rental-housing nightmares such as this one: you've created a severe drug and crime problem by pock-marking the city with fifty Cabrini Greens!

“I want to be out of here so bad. There are people hiding everywhere, in the hallways, around the corners. I want to go because I’m scared. I’ve been living here since 1998 and this is the worst I ever felt.”

– Sierra Milton, a resident of Cabrini-Green, quoted in Sunday’s New York Times


Chicago only sends her best and brightest to La Crosse👍
