Second Drug Bust this Week

For the second time this week, the La Crosse Police Drug Unit has made a significant seizure and arrest. On June 5, 2019 members of the La Crosse Police Department’s Investigative Bureau (drug unit) as well as the Emergency Response Team conducted a search warrant at 1435 Caledonia Street.
As a result of this investigation and warrant, David L. Wims (DOB 02/12/1979), a convicted felon who is known in the criminal justice system, was located in the residence and taken into custody. The subsequent search of Wims resulted in police locating 26 individual baggies containing 16.0 grams of suspected heroin along with $500.00 cash. The search of Wims’ residence revealed evidence of drug trafficking and a safe was located in his bedroom. Located in the safe was approximately $5000.00 cash and 75.8 grams of suspected heroin/fentanyl for a total of 91.8 grams of heroin/fentanyl. The estimated street value of the drugs seized is over $13,000.00.
David L. Wims, who is already on parole for the delivery of methamphetamine, was charged with the following:
• Delivery of Heroin
• Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place
• Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
• Possession with Intent to Deliver greater than 50 grams of Heroin
• Probation Warrant
As noted earlier, this is the second significant search warrant executed by our drug unit and Emergency Response Team this week. All totaled between the two warrants, 96.0 grams of heroin/fentanyl, ecstasy pills, $12,500 in cash, and .22 Caliber handgun have been recovered.
Wims is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
