OSHKOSH - Oshkosh police are calling it the biggest one-day drug bust in the city's history. Officers arrested three men and seized more than $128,000 in drugs and cash.
Two weeks ago Wednesday, police raided three homes and a storage shed on Oshkosh's west side looking for drugs.
This is what they say they found.
"It's thought to be the largest single-day drug seizure in the City of Oshkosh, in terms of quantity, and street value," said Oshkosh Police Chief Scott Greuel.
Police say they confiscated heroin, cocaine and marijuana. They also seized dozens of pills from ecstasy to oxycodone.
"The street value of the drugs seized is approximately $128,000, not including the vehicles," said Greuel.
They also recovered six vehicles and more than $37,000 in cash.
According to the criminal complaint, three homes were raided resulting in three arrests. Police say Ubaldo Adame, 36, sold cocaine to an undercover agent. When he was arrested at his west-side home, police say they found pills, cash, and cocaine.
Fernando Sandoval, 43, is charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine.
And Rodolfo Reyes-Olivas, 45, is charged with possession of cocaine.
The four-month investigation stretched from Wisconsin, to Alabama and Texas.
"We believe Texas is where the drugs were coming from," said Brad Dunlap of the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit.
Investigators say this sting is significant.
"The nearly three quarters of a kilo of cocaine that was seized. 750 grams, that's 75,000 doses of cocaine," said Dunlap.
And agents say they are going after more than the dealers.
"We've identified over 50 customers, the estimate can range as high as 70 different customers that these individuals were trafficking to," said Dunlap.
Investigators say this is part of a growing drug problem in the Fox Valley.
"It's one of those issues, that I don't think we'll win the war, but we have to fight the battle. I think it will have a short-term impact. They were significant players in the distribution of the drugs they were doing," said Greuel.
When you add it all up, the three men face more than 233 years behind bars.
Court appearances are scheduled in the upcoming weeks.
