TOMAH, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Two men are arrested as Tomah Police investigate the heroin trade in the Monroe County city.

Sgt. Christopher Weaver says that the department was looking into a non-fatal heroin overdose on New Year's Day.  Their work led to a search of a home at 814 Cedar Lane on Friday. 

During the search, the home's owner, Donald Frantzen, returned home.  Police state that he'd just returned from the Chicago area where he bought 10 grams of heroin to sell in the Tomah area.  When Frantzen was approached by police, he unsuccessfully tried to get rid of the drugs.

Sgt. Weaver states the 33-year-old Frantzen was taken to the Monroe County Jail on heroin trafficking and Bailjumping charges.

Also arrested by Tomah Police was 22-year-old Shelton Hughes on Bailjumping charges.

According to Sgt. Weaver, the department expects to have additional arrests and charges in connection to this investigation.

Frantzen is being held in the Monroe County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond and Hughes is being held on $1,000 cash bond.
