DA, cops target Milwaukee dealers who sell to Ozaukee buyers just across county line

    A 33-year-old Milwaukee man who allegedly sold drugs to an undercover sheriff’s deputy in Glendale has been charged — in Ozaukee County — with conspiring to deal heroin.

    Why Ozaukee County? Because law enforcement officers and prosecutors here are taking their fight against heroin and other drugs across the border.

    Three felony charges of conspiracy to manufacture/deliver heroin against Antonio Green Sr., who according to court records is a felon who lives on North 39th Street in Milwaukee, are the result of the latest tactic Ozaukee County is using in its campaign against drug dealers who have become too savvy to pedal their product on Ozaukee soil but nonetheless are still willing to supply local distributors.

    “We’re trying something new because Lord knows what we’ve been doing hasn’t solved the problem,” Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol said. “You’ll be seeing more of these cases in the future because we realize the other side of the border is just a short drive away, and what we’ve seen recently is a concerted effort by drug dealers to consummate their deals on the other side of the border.”
