La Crosse drug dealer now up to 10 charges after search of home



Deante House is now facing three new drug charges in La Crosse County, following police searches from last Friday. 

That brings the total of charges against House to 10, since a search of a south-side La Crosse home March 21.

His bond remains at $50,000. Prosecutors stated that House also faces drug charges in Illinois from a couple of years ago.

The 32-year-old was one of three arrested last week for drug trafficking, after a home search on Johnson Street. House is now accused of maintaining drug trafficking places at both the Johnson Street residence and his own home in Onalaska.

Prosecutor Jessica Skemp said House’s girlfriend appears to have helped him try to hide drug activity.

“I believe some of the allegations are that she moved and hid the drugs and the money,” Skemp said in court Tuesday.

House is scheduled to appear on the new charges again about two weeks from now.
