Eau Claire drug conspiracy probe results in 5 indictments

Distribution of hundreds of pounds of pot, cocaine, and meth

A yearlong investigation into the large-scale distribution of illegal drugs in the Eau Claire area has resulted in federal indictments against five people.

Police say the five were involved in a conspiracy that over two years brought marijuana from the western U.S. to Eau Claire and surrounding communities and distributed hundreds of pounds of pot, cocaine, and methamphetamine.

Authorities say they expect to charge several more people in the case.

Local, state, and federal authorities are involved in the investigation.
