BURNETT COUNTY -- The Court has sentenced the first of three individuals charged following a May 2020 drug bust in the Village of Siren, WI.

DrydenWire.com reported in June 2020, that three individuals had been arrested and charged after authorities executed a search warrant at a residence in the Village of Siren, WI.

Authorities searched a vehicle parked at the residence, and inside the vehicle, found a loaded RUGER P90DC, a glass smoking device (which tested positive for meth), and over $300 in US Currency.

During the search of the residence, authorities located over 20 grams of suspected methamphetamine; nearly 10 grams of suspected cocaine; a digital scale which tested positive for methamphetamine; numerous unused gem bags and other items of drug paraphernalia; over $600 in US Currency; and several cell phones.

Troy Lanning, Gerard Mckee, and Chelsea Lindmeier were found at the residence and all were arrested and charged.
