Two men from La Crosse are charged in federal court with dealing meth, in apparently separate cases. 

Thirty-three-year-old Cody Stough is suspected of distributing 50 grams or more of the drug last November. 

Stough could get 40 years in prison if he’s convicted.  A three-county task force in southwestern Wisconsin conducted the investigation. 

In a more recent arrest, 35-year-old Tang Vue allegedly delivered meth in the city of La Crosse in January and February.  Vue also could get 40 years in prison on one charge, and possibly another 20 years for a second charge. 

Meanwhile, an arrest this week in north La Crosse leads to state drug trafficking charges against two people. 

Steven McCurdy and Heather Turner are accused of dealing drugs at an apartment on Island Street. 

Police arrested McCurdy and Turner after an arranged meth buy on Monday. 

McCurdy also is charged with a previous drug deal in November, and he has 20 convictions on his record dating back to 2008. 

Officers found McCurdy carrying thousands of dollars in cash, including money provided by police for a meth purchase.
