Federal drug case began with Saukville pot dealer PDF Print E-mail

DEA investigation that resulted in recent grand jury indictments was started by Ozaukee authorities last year

    The investigation into a Milwaukee North Shore drug trafficking and money laundering operation that was busted by federal authorities last week began a year ago when the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department uncovered a large marijuana distribution operation in Saukville, Lt. Rodney Galbraith said this week.

    The local probe, which evolved into a regional case headed by the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration and led to federal indictments against six people, dates to September 2012, when the Ozaukee Sheriff’s Department Anti-Drug Task Force began investigating Saukville resident Paul Heiniger, said Galbraith, who oversees the county’s drug unit and detective bureau.

    Heiniger was one of the people indicted last week for drug trafficking.

    “We obtained information that led us to believe there was a major marijuana distribution ring operating in Saukville,” he said. “Paul Heiniger was living in Saukville at the time, and we believe he was receiving and distributing marijuana in the county.”

    Heiniger led authorities to Edward G. Patterson, 38, of Whitefish Bay, who was part of a conspiracy to transport large quantities of marijuana from California to Wisconsin and sell it, then launder the proceeds through McDonald’s restaurants he  owns in Mequon, Fox Point and Glendale, according to the indictment filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
