Multiple arrests have been made in a drug bust in downtown Ripon.
Green Lake County Probation and Parole and the Ripon Police Department executed a probation search May 9 of Tattoo Mike's Studio One, 227 Watson St.
During the search by the probation officers, they discovered items indicating drug use by the occupants, one of which was currently on probation supervision by the Green Lake County Probation and Parole. The city of Ripon Police Department then executed a search warrant at the same location.
During that search warrant, Ripon Police Department officers found drug paraphernalia, indicating use of narcotics at the location. Several items have been sent to the Wisconsin State Crime Laboratory for further analysis.
Several subjects were taken into custody at the location, including, a 31-year-old male, who was arrested for a probation violation and will be facing several felony drug charges.
Also arrested at the location was a 20-year-old female rural Ripon resident, who was charged with multiple drug offense counts, including possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and possession of a synthetic controlled substance.
An investigation into continued drug violations continues. Read the full story in the upcoming May 19 Ripon Commonwealth Press.
