Drug Dealing Case will go to Trial
09/05/2018- The case against a Milwaukee man in Marinette County Court on a handful of drug charges is set to go to trial. A status conference was held Tuesday for 23-year-old Laron DeShay Mitchell who’s facing four counts of manufacturing or delivery of heroin and seven counts of felony bail jumping, as well as second-degree recklessly endangering safety, maintaining a drug trafficking place, and fleeing/eluding an officer. Mitchell was first arrested January 27th following a traffic stop in Menominee where officers found five grams of heroin and more than eight grams of cocaine on Mitchell. While out on bond for that incident, a drug investigation in Marinette County revealed he sold heroin to a confidential informant numerous times between January and February. Officers attempted to arrest Mitchell during one of these sales, but he fled south on Highway 141 in a high-speed chase. Mitchell’s jury trial is now scheduled to begin January 29th.
