5 men charged with distributing drugs in Wis.


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A federal grand jury has charged a group of Fox Valley-area men with distributing cocaine and marijuana.

An indictment announced Thursday alleges five men conspired to distribute at least five kilograms of cocaine and at least 100 kilograms of marijuana between January 2007 and March 2010. It did not offer any further details.

According to court documents, investigators have seized $135,192 in connection with the conspiracy.

U.S. Attorney James Santelle says four of the men are from Menasha. The fifth is formerly of Green Bay.

Each of the men faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and $4 million in fines if convicted. Online court records did not list an attorney for any of them.
