Four Sparta residents charged in drug trafficking case, after two searches
A drug bust in Sparta has led to multiple charges for two men and two women.
Police searched two homes in Sparta last Friday, and found fentanyl, cocaine, and meth, along with $12,000 cash.
A bond of $100,000 has been set for 41-year-old Lavell Early, who appeared in Monroe County Court on Monday. Also brought to court were 35-year-old David Smith and 39-year-old Rainbow Gonzalez.
A fourth suspect, 33-year-old Brittany Stokes, has not been found yet.
Early has a long list of criminal charges in recent years, including some past arrests in La Crosse County. Smith is currently on probation for another case. He and Gonzalez were given cash bonds in court.
All four are being charged with possessing cocaine.
