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.
