    FOREST COUNTY (WLUK) -- Two women were arrested following a drug bust in Forest County Tuesday.

    Melissa Wade, 35 of Oneida, and Morningstar Skenandore, 36 of Milwaukee, were allegedly selling heroin and crack cocaine on the Potawatomi Native American Reservation.

    Forest County deputies say someone called to report the two women at 11:42 that morning.

    Shortly after officials pulled over Wade and Skenandore for not wearing seat belts, according to police.

    After searching the vehicle officials say they found drug paraphernalia, including packaging for heroin and cocaine and a large amount of cash.

    When the two were taken to the Forest County Jail and searched, officials say Wade "removed an item from inside of her," holding 12 grams of heroin, four grams of crack cocaine and two grams of marijuana.

    The two are behind bars, recommended for several charges, including intent to deliver heroin and cocaine, possession of THC, possession of drug paraphernalia and bail jumping.

    They are not formally charged with any drug offenses at this time.
