Juneau, WI – The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) in a press release reported that on Monday, November 14, 2016, the Dodge County Drug Task Force (DCDTF) arrested LaCresha A. P.

Lightfoot was charged with multiple felony counts for Manufacturing/Delivery of Heroin – PTAC, Manufacturing/Delivery of Cocaine – PTAC, and Delivery of a Counterfeit Narcotic Drug – PTAC, according to the DCSO.
A multi-law drug enforcement task force investigation indicated that Lightfoot was well known to operated her drug distribution ring from several locations throughout the City of Beaver Dam including Lakecrest Drive, Rosendale Street, and the Shoe Factory Apartments on N.
