Marathon County sheriff's deputies say two people were taken into custody after allegedly selling crack cocaine to undercover agents Thursday in the parking lot of the TJ Maxx discount retail store in Rib Mountain.

Nikita Wilichowski, 20, faces three counts of delivery of crack cocaine and one count of delivery of heroin.

Tyion Springfield, 35, is tentatively charged with two counts of party to the crime of delivery of crack cocaine and possession of marijuana.

He was also wanted on a department of corrections warrant as an absconder from parole supervision.

After Wilichowski and Springfield were arrested, police searched Wilichowski's Marathon City home.

They say they confiscated marijuana, Oxycontin, a shotgun, a handgun and evidence of drug trafficking.

The sheriff says the arrests were the result of a month long investigation involving the sheriff's department and Wausau and Everest Metro police.

He says more arrests are expected.
