LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The La Crosse man arrested last week following a raid of his home by police, is charged Monday with heroin delivery.
Vincent Hudson was arrested October 24 following a search of his Redfield Street home. Two other people, Luvine Hudson and Nickolas Fitzpatrick were also arrested.
The criminal complaint filed against Hudson details how an undercover informant contacted Fitzpatrick, who then went with the informant to Hudson's home. While the informant waited outside, Fitzpatrick went inside. Both left a few minutes later. Police then moved in and arrested Fitzpatrick. The informant admitted giving Fitzpatrick police buy money, and in return, was given the heroin when Fitzpatrick came out of the home.
Talking to investigators, Fitzpatrick admitted to buying the heroin from Hudson.
Armed with a search warrant, officers found drugs, cash, and drug packaging material in the home.
The complaint states that Hudson admitted he'd been selling heroin for the past three months.
In court, Hudson was changed with one count of Possession with Intent to Deliver Heroin (>10-50g), and one count of Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place. The possession charge could bring a maximum 25 year prison term.
The other two people arrested are expected to make court appearances later this week.
