A year-long investigation into heroin and cocaine in the Oshkosh area has landed 48 people in jail. Brad Dunlap is the director of the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit and he says they focused on a group of ten people and nine of them are in custody. “That group, we are alleging, in the last two and a-half years, is responsible for roughly six kilograms of cocaine and almost nine kilograms of heroin that they had distributed,” Dunlap said. The drugs have a street value of $4.5 million, according to Dunlap, who said that the drugs were originating in Chicago. “The individuals that we arrested that were the main targets of this investigation were originally from the Chicagoland area,” he said, and had moved to Oshkosh as long as four or five years ago. The operation expanded as more people arrived. Oshkosh police and the Winnebago County sheriff’s department also helped with the investigation.
