Two Wisconsin Rapids residents face possession charges in a recent drug bust.
According to police reports, on Jan. 12, members of the Wisconsin Rapids Special Response Team executed a search warrant at the residence of 37-year-old Tyrone Wallace, located on the 600 block of Wisconsin St. Also identified in the residence was 20-year-old Arianna McClintock.

During the search law enforcement located a prescription pill bottle with two aluminum foil bindles inside containing heroin totaling one gram. Also found within the house was a digital scale, $692 in miscellaneous currency, marijuana, and four big screen high definition televisions.
According to McClintock, the televisions were allegedly purchased from money made through previous drug transactions.
Law enforcement also viewed multiple conversations from Wallace’s phone relating to the sale of heroin to a number of people. The same was found in McClintock’s phone through text messages, as she is believed to have allegedly taken over selling drugs for a friend who is currently incarcerated.
Records indicate Wallace has a history of drug related offenses in Milwaukee County. If convicted, Wallace faces up to 16 years imprisonment and up to $35,000 in fines for possession of heroin with intent to sell, as well as possession of marijuana. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 24.
McClintock faces up to 12 years and six months imprisonment and up to $25,000 in fines for possession of heroin with intent to sell. Her initial appearance in court is scheduled for Feb. 6.
