Lac du Flambeau man sentenced in drug probe

MADISON (WAOW) – A third person from northern Wisconsin was sentenced Tuesday for distributing oxycodone, U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil said.

Derek Armstrong, 28, of Lac du Flambeau was sentenced to two years in federal prison and three years of supervised release after pleading guilty to the charge in April, the prosecutor said.

Armstrong was arrested after law enforcement officers bought oxycodone from him in June 2013 and learned he wired money to a drug source in Milwaukee and had in his possession $5,400 in drug proceeds, Vaudreuil said in a statement.

Earlier, Lois Vetterneck, 54, of Lac du Flambeau was sentenced to a year on federal probation and her son Brandon Vetterneck, 37, also of Lac du Flambeau, was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for distributing oxycodone, a narcotic commonly prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain.

According to Vaudreuil, two informants purchased the drug on three occasions in April 2013 at the Vetterneck home.
