Two Wausau men are in custody on drug-related charges.

Nineteen-year-old Rayshon Ferguson and 22-year-old Brian Fisher have been charged with manufacturing and delivering cocaine, maintaining a drug-trafficking residence and bail jumping.

Neighbors say they have witnessed unusual activity at the white house with green trim where Fisher lives.

Neighbors agreed to speak with News Channel Seven on the condition that their identities not be revealed.

"There's a lot of traffic that goes in and out of the house," said a female neighbor. "And they don't stay very long. They stay for a couple minutes and then they leave. From what I've seen as far as the people going in and out are usually the younger crowd."

"At one point our daughter did tell us that she was buying crack-cocaine from that house," a male neighbor said.

Brian Fisher has been arrested before. He is currently facing several misdemeanor charges from arrests dating back to the spring of 2002.

Rayshon Ferguson is already facing felony drug-related charges from an arrest made during the summer of 2002. Ferguson's brother, Raylynn, says detectives seized several pitbull puppies from the house.

The shelter manager at the Marathon County Humane Society says they were asked to pick up 21 pitbull puppies, but will not say where the puppies came from or what condition they are in. The only thing she will say is that the puppies cannot be legally adopted.

Ferguson and Fisher are expected to appear in court on Monday.
