OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- Five people have been arrested and police are recommending charges against two others after a drug bust in Oshkosh.

The police department says its Vice and Narcotics Unit raided a location in the 300 block of Broad Street on Tuesday. Officers say they found:

  • Around 256 grams of crystal meth
  • 6.7 grams of heroin
  • 10 doses of oxycodone
  • 19 doses of MDMA, otherwise known as ecstasy
  • Marijuana
  • Butane hash oil
  • Cocaine
  • Prescription drugs
  • Psychedelic mushrooms
  • Suspected LSD

Officers arrested a 37-year-old man, a 30-year-old woman, a 35-year-old man, a 25-year-old woman and a 32-year-old woman. Their names were not released.

"This was somewhat unusual for us to be able to locate 11 different types of drugs at this one place," said Kate Mann of the Oshkosh Police Department. "We're not going to tolerate people dealing drugs in the city of Oshkosh."

Oshkosh police also say this bust was significant because it happened on the second day of the new year.

Police say there are officers assigned solely to investigate drug crimes within the city.
