EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - Minnesota authorities report they have arrested 20 people and put what they call “a big dent” in the methamphetamine trade in that state and western Wisconsin.
An unnamed suspect from Eau Claire was apparently among those arrested.
As a part of a wide ranging investigation, drug agents seized nearly 17 pounds of meth worth an estimated $500,000.
Authorities are saying the sellers were targeting the Hmong community. They say taking the 20 suspects off the streets has made metropolitan Minneapolis a safer place to live.
