A lengthy investigation by the United States Postal Inspection Service, the US Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco And Firearms, and several state and local law enforcement offices, resulted in the arrest of three male suspects late Tuesday morning at the Waupaca Post Office.
Following the arrests, a federal search warrant was conducted at a rural Waupaca residence, by the Waupaca SWAT team, and the DCI SWAT team, yielding numerous weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
Two suspects arrested will be referred for federal prosecution on uniform controlled substance and weapons charges. The third suspect is not being held, with possible charges in the future.
The Waupaca Sherrif’s Department and City of Waupaca Police aided in the investigation, which continues, names of the suspects have not yet been released.
