La Crosse Police make drug raid at Jackson St. home


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse Police conduct a drug raid at a southside home Friday evening.

Exclusive video and pictures from WXOW show two men being led by officers from the home at 615 Jackson Street.  Both men were in handcuffs and placed into La Crosse Police squad cars.

A number of armed officers, both plainclothes and uniformed, took part in the raid.

A neighbor, Ted Kolkind, tells WXOW that he witnessed the raid.  He said he heard noises outside, and when he went to check, saw a number of people carrying guns and one man cornered. He was told by one of the people to go back in his home.  He did, and called 9-1-1.  "None of them didn't have no badges on, they're all plainclothes, so I called 9-1-1.  They said there was something going on in the area, so I was at least assured that there were police officers out here because everybody had their guns drawn."

Police have not released any additional details about the raid or the two men led from the home.

This is the third raid involving drugs in La Crosse this month. On April 4, the FBI raided a southside home and arrested a suspected Chicago gang member on drugs and weapons charges.

On April 8, police arrested a man at his State Road home that turned up nearly $10,000 in drugs.
