The intercept of a package in Miami, Florida last month led to the arrest of two Sturgeon Bay residents after law enforcement searched the home Tuesday. On May 23, the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Patrol notified the Door/Kewaunee County Drug Task Force of a large amount of cocaine being sent from overseas to a Sturgeon Bay address. The task force searched the home Tuesday with help from the DHS, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States Post Office, K-9 Units from Door County and the Wisconsin State Patrol, and the Sturgeon Bay Police Department. Approximately $25,000 worth of powder cocaine and marijuana was seized during the search, leading to the arrest of Harold M. Baker and James E. Johnson. Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says this case provides a good example for the importance of agencies working together.
Baker and Johnson were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession with intent to deliver cocaine and marijuana. Their next scheduled court date is June 11.
