Fentanyl suspect in La Crosse to face court case in Tennessee



A Chicago man arrested in what was described as the largest fentanyl bust ever in La Crosse County is now headed to Tennessee. 

Caprice Washington has agreed to turn himself over to Tennessee authorities in another court case. 

In exchange, Wisconsin drug possession charges against Washington will be dismissed. 

Washington was one of three men busted in October during a raid of an apartment on Miller Street. 

Jesse Stringer and Jerrad Sims are still facing charges in the La Crosse case.

Police found about a pound of fentanyl, an amount which prosecutors claim would be enough to kill everyone in La Crosse County.
