Four in Custody after Drug Bust in Wausau

The Marathon County sheriff says four people face charges after The Marathon County Special Investigations Unit executed search warrants at two homes early Wednesday morning in Wausau.

They are 932 1/2 Townline Rd and at 225 1/2 N. 4th Ave.

27-year old Billy Lamaal Jones was arrested at the Townline residence. He faces several charges of delivery of crack cocaine.

Three people were arrested at the N. 4th Ave. residence.

23-year old Anisha Butalla faces a count of possession of cocaine base with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug trafficking place. 29-year old Dione Steel could be charged with three counts of delivery of cocaine base. 22-year old Andre Thomas is also suspected of delivery of cocaine base and was arrested on an outstanding warrant from Milwaukee County.

Authorities say a large amount of crack cocaine was seized in the raids, along with cash and a vehicle.

The crimes, deputies tell us, were related to each other and the arrests are the result of an joint investigation between several local departments.
