LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Three people make a court appearance Friday on heroin related drug charges after their arrest by authorities.

La Crosse Police, working with the FBI and U.S. Postal Service, raided a home at 1309 Redfield Street Thursday morning.

Vincent E. Hudson, 50; Luvine Hudson, 43; and Nickolas S. Fitzpatrick, 42, were arrested.

A department release states the search turned up 13.6 grams of heroin worth more than $4,500, nearly $8,800 in cash, drug paraphernalia, scales, and packaging materials.

The release did not say what led to the search. 

Vincent Hudson was arrested on charges of:

  • Possession with Intent to Deliver Heroin greater than 10 grams less than 50grams
  • Maintain a Drug Trafficking Place
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Possession of a Drug without a Script

"He admitted selling heroin for three and a half months," Tim Gruenke, La Crosse County District Attorney said. "He had $8,000 at his house that he indicated was from the sale of heroin. He also had 60 to 70 grams of heroin at his house ready for sale. Given the extent of that trafficking, the penalties he is facing are significant."

Vincent is still in custody on a $2,500 cash bond.  He is due back in court on Monday for the filing of the criminal complaint.

Luvine Hudson was arrested on a charge of Maintain a Drug Trafficking Place.  She was released on a $1,000 signature bond.

Fitzpatrick was arrested on a charge of Delivery of Heroin less than three grams.  He was released on a $2,500 signature bond.

Luvine and Fitzpatrick are due back in court on Friday for the filing of the criminal complaints.
