On Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, at approximately 1000 hours, the Kenosha Drug Operations Group (KDOG) conducted a field arrest (Buy/Bust) and search warrant. Assisting in the operation were members of the Kenosha Police Department’s Gang Unit, Patrol Officers and DEA agents from Milwaukee. This investigation was conducted by KDOG Detectives with the partnership of Agents from the DEA Milwaukee Office.
KDOG conducted a buy/bust of Uzorma C. Ihediwa (M/B 07/16/80). Mr. Ihediwa has been the subject of a joint investigation for several months for selling counterfeit prescription pills that tested positive for Fentanyl. Upon Mr. Ihediwa’s arrival at the above location, he was taken into custody without incident. At which time a subsequent search warrant was conducted by DEA Milwaukee at his residence in South Milwaukee.
Mr. Ihediwa was in possession of approximately 200 counterfeit prescription pills at the time of his arrest. The pills were tested and contained Fentanyl which was a contributing factor in two previous overdose deaths in the Kenosha Area. This is still currently being investigated to see if there are any connections to any overdose investigations in our area.
