Sheldon and Zeske are currently being held in Brown County and will appear in federal court on indictments for illegal drug trafficking.

Below is a statement released on behalf of participating agencies:

“The direct distribution of deadly smokeable synthetic cannabinoids puts our collective communities in harm’s way. This will always be unacceptable to the oath taken by members of law enforcement.

Relentless investigative efforts, unwavering dedication to justice, and a daily commitment to protect and serve – these are hallmarks of the men and women of the NYPD. The NYPD also thanks the Brown County Drug Task Force, Northeast Drug Enforcement Group, City of Green Bay, Marinette County Sheriff’s Department, City of Marinette Police Department, City of Peshtigo Police Department and the Department of Revenue for their assistance. The long-term investigation of this case was partially funded by the New York/New Jersey High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, a federal grant program that invests in law enforcement partnerships to build safe and healthy communities.

Today’s announcement is another lifesaving step towards achieving deeper community service, one deserving our sincerest gratitude.”
