KAUKAUNA – Multiple law enforcement agencies converged on a home in Kaukauna Tuesday where a suspect in a drug investigation eventually was arrested.

The Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group – Drug Unit is leading the investigation and is being assisted by the Kaukauna Police Department, Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department and Appleton Police Department.

A residential search was conducted in a home on the 600 block of Frances Street in Kaukauna, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

Upon law enforcement arrival, the suspect is believed to have fled the residence and was later located and arrested by law enforcement in a neighboring residence.

The suspect was transported to the Outagamie County Jail pending formal criminal charges.  There is no threat to the public. 

No further information can be released at this time, as this investigation remains ongoing.
