A La Crosse guy faces potential trials in state and federal courts for meth. La Crosse Police have charged Larry Bailey for manufacturing and dealing methamphetamine. He was originally arrested last month but apparently wasn't playing ball with cops so, on Friday, they rounded up the 37 year-old and put him behind bars. Besides the local charges, Bailey's been told he's also close to an indictment on federal drug charges.
It's taking longer than first expected to bring vehicular homicide charges against a 17-year-old from Winona County.
The first court hearing for Adam Greden has been postponed from tomorrow until October 26th. The Winona County attorney's office hopes to try Greden in adult court for the April traffic deaths of three teenage girls. They were in a pickup that rolled over, allegedly while racing with Greden on roads near Altura, Minnesota. A 12-year-old girl riding in the pickup had broken legs after the crash.
The Monroe County Building Committee Friday recommended constructing a proposed justice center in downtown Sparta in one phase as opposed to a phased project.
The majority of the committee believed it would be more expensive to build the project in two phases, beginning with a 180-cell jail, and followed later by an addition for courtrooms and a remodeling of the courthouse.
The estimated the cost of a total build project is at $29 million, including land acquisition.
Winona Police continue their search for a man who shot two women near the WSU campus late Saturday night. Witnesses say a college-aged, possibly light-skinned black man, shot the two after an altercation and fled the scene.
Officers interviewed a "person of interest" in the shooting, but no arrests have been made.
The names of the victims, two 19-year-old women, was not released, however, because the women fear for their lives. One woman was shot in the leg, while the other had a graze-type wound on her abdomen. What exactly led to the shooting is still unclear.
