Three Men Arrested For Marijuana Grow In Forest Co.

Forest County Sheriff's Department

Three men were arrested by Forest County authorities last week allegedly harvesting a marijuana grow near Armstrong Creek.

A 51 year old Waukesha man, a 32 year old Milwaukee man and a 35 year old man from Big Bend were arrested allegedly harvesting the plants. Inside a nearby residence deputies found marijuana, cocaine and drug devices.

All three are being held at the Forest County Jail on charges of Manufacturing THC, Possession with Intent to Deliver and Possession of Paraphernalia and Possession of Cocaine.

Sheriff John Dennee says the investigation began after a citizen contacted the Forest County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force saying there was a suspected marijuana grow near the person's property.
