Alan D. Messier, 27, and Bethany A. Adler, 22, were arrested during a Dec. 22 traffic stop in the town of Walworth.
The arrests stem from law enforcement spending numerous hours of surveillance on the pair and using a confidential informant to purchase heroin from them, according to a Dec. 23 press release from the Walworth County Drug Enforcement Unit.
Messier was arrested on three counts of delivering heroin, seven counts of delivering heroin as a party to a Crime, possession of heroin with intent to deliver and possession of MDMA (ecstasy) with intent to deliver.
Adler was arrested on seven counts of delivering heroin. All of the charges have been referred to the Walworth County District Attorney's Office.
After the traffic stop, deputies recovered 15 tablets of suspected MDMA, which weighed 4.5 grams. Deputies also found 26 bindles of suspected heroin.
The Drug Unit has identifed numerous customers of Messier and Adler and believe more arrests will follow, according to the press release.
