Two Elroy residents were charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place. Court records show that 32-year-old Rachel Murry and 31-year-old Dequantus Cleaveland were charged with multiple drug-related charges including delivery of methamphetamine, two counts of manufacture/deliver THC, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Murry was additionally charged with a count of delivery of methamphetamine-party to a crime, and misdemeanor possession of THC.

According the criminal complaints:

On June 10, 2017, a Juneau County detective was working with the Juneau County Drug Task Force. A confidential informant went to an Elroy address, and met with Cleaveland, to purchase marijuana and methamphetamine. The confidential informant had conversations with a woman, identified as Rachel Murry about purchasing illicit substances, such as marijuana and methamphetamine.  Cleaveland, who goes by the alias “Q” sold the confidential informant 4.2 grams of marijuana and 1?4 gram of methamphetamine. On July 6, 2017, the confidential informant had phone and text conversations with Murry about purchasing methamphetamine. They met at a business parking lot in Elroy and Murry sold the confidential informant a gram of methamphetamine. On July 12, 2017, a confidential informant purchased 4 grams marijuana from Murry at a residence in New Lisbon. Authorities that were on site observed Murry and Cleaveland drive through New Lisbon and back to the original residence in Elroy. On October 28, a confidential informant and an undercover officer made arrangements to purchase methamphetamine from Cortney Bradley, and they drove to the Elroy residence that was known as Murry’s home. Bradley went into the residence and gave the undercover officer  just about 1/2 gram of methamphetamine. On November 10, 2017, at 8:00 am, the Juneau County Drug Task Force and START executed a search warrant on the Elroy address. Both Cleaveland and Murry were arrested as a result of the continuing investigation from the residence at the time of execution. During the search, officials found a 0.25 gram bag of “crystalline type substance” under the mattress in Murry’s and Cleaveland’s bedroom, which tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a one gram bag, which tested positive for THC. Nurmerous other items of drug paraphernalia were also located in the bedroom.

An initial appearance for Murry is scheduled for December 6, 2017, and a plea hearing has been scheduled for Cleaveland for February 1, 2018, both at the Juneau County Justice Center.
