A different kind of drug bust by La Crosse Police announced Monday resulted in the seizure of over $1 million in drugs, multiple guns and ammo and an apparent pill lab.
The lab was found in a storage unit. It was police called a “pill press laboratory,” used to make Xanax.
Police also recovered what appears to be a ridiculous amount of drugs — everything from over a hundred pounds of counterfeit Xanax to cocaine, meth, among others.
Also found was a rifle, four hand guns, and a lot of ammo, including what police called a “drum magazine.”
Arrested was Jade “Justice” Deeny, who police say is a convicted felon who spent time in North Carolina prison for “drugs and guns.”
Police had a search warrant for the 600 block of Powell Street. They also searched the 26-year-old Deeny’s vehicle. During those searches, police found a lease warrant for a storage unit. They obtained a search warrant for that, as well, and came across the “Xanax station” — a 10-by-10-foot storage unit. The location wasn’t given.
Here’s a list of what police say it found through search warrants:
- 135.13 pounds of pressed counterfeit Xanax in three different colors
- 1-pound fentanyl (located next to Xanax station and most likely used in pills)
- 1-pound counterfeit Adderall but tested positive for methamphetamine
- 25.3 grams methamphetamine pills
- 77 narcotic pills
- 250.7 grams of cocaine
- 524 grams THC wax
- 4 pounds THC candies
- 212 grams psilocybin infused chocolate
- 4 handguns (2 different high capacity magazines and 1 drum magazine with 51 rounds loaded in it)
- 1 rifle (603 rounds of .223 ammunition)
- 186 rounds 9mm, 198 rounds 45 caliber
- $5,953 dollars
- Automated pill press with professional mixer
- 385 pounds of inert materials needed to make counterfeit Xanax
- Thousands of USPS boxes ready to mail his product
Judge Todd Bjerke has set Deeny’s bond at $1 million cash, and he’s due back in court on Friday.
