Well-heeled drug suspect had big bucks hidden in his shoes



This guy had $4000 hidden in his shoes, apparently including money from a recent drug deal. 

Frederick Moore of Chicago is now charged with dealing fentanyl in La Crosse. 

Police arrested Moore this week after a deal involving an undercover informant. 

Investigators found Moore carrying fentanyl, and hiding thousands of dollars inside his shoes. 

Moore claimed he was in town to visit a cousin, but the informant says the only reason Moore comes to La Crosse is to sell drugs. 

Moore is now in jail, and his bond is higher than what was in his shoes…set at $75,000 cash.
