MILWAUKEE — MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Wood County Sheriff's Department seized over $132,000 worth of illegal drugs, including fentanyl, cocaine and ecstasy, during a search of a home in the Town of Saratoga this week.

The sheriff's department says it was part of a long-term investigation with state law enforcement agencies. Police officers also found marijuana, $16,000 in cash and high-valued jewelry.

A woman who lived at the home was arrested. Wood County Sheriff Shawn Becker says the county has seen 12 overdoses this year and the seizure would help prevent more.
