Waupun Man Among Those Indicted On Federal Drug Trafficking Charges

(Waupun) A Waupun man is one of seven people facing federal drug trafficking conspiracy charges for selling methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana in the Sheboygan area. The US Department of Justice Eastern District of Wisconsin announced the federal grand jury indictment Thursday against Ethan Massey. The 43-year-old is charged along with five other men from the Sheboygan area and one Appleton man. The defendants are accused of selling the controlled substances between June of 2018 and December of last year. DEA Milwaukee District Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Paul Maxwell Junior says the agency recently expanded its operations to include the Sheboygan area and notes that the indictments show how even newly-formed law enforcement partnerships can quickly be effective in the fight against drug trafficking. Attorney General Josh Kaul applauded the coordinated efforts of local, state and federal law enforcement in fighting the drug epidemic.  If convicted, the charges carry a minimum of ten years and maximum of life in prison.


The defendants charged in this case reside in the following cities in Wisconsin:

Irwin Sosa (25) Sheboygan
Omar Sosa (23) Sheboygan
Isaiah Beasley (24) Sheboygan
