BREAKING NEWS: Search of Monroe home leads to heroin-related arrests

MONROE - A middle-of-the-night drug bust at an apartment building on Monroe's south side this week led to the arrest of three residents on heroin-related charges, according to police.

The execution of the search warrant at an apartment at 1517 21st Street at about 1 a.m. Wednesday "comes as part of an ongoing campaign against opiate trafficking," Monroe Chief of Police Fred Kelley wrote in a release.

The search yielded a handgun and about three grams of suspected heroin.

Maurice D. King, 47, was arrested on charges of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, maintaining a drug-trafficking dwelling and possessing heroin with intent to deliver as party to a crime.

Fletcher J. Dahl, 31, was arrested on a charge of possessing heroin with intent to deliver. Both men were jailed pending court. Court records for Wisconsin show no criminal history for Dahl and, for King, a misdemeanor conviction of battery from 2017.

The same night, police spotted a third resident of the apartment, Antowyn L. Johnson, 46, standing outside a car in a gas station parking lot in the 1600 block of 9th Street. Officers searched the vehicle. He was cited for possessing drug paraphernalia and released.

The search on the apartment and vehicle were part of a coordinated effort by agents with the State Line Area Narcotics Team, known as SLANT. The organization includes officers from Monroe, Green County and Lafayette County as well as Illinois State Police and Freeport, Loves Park, Rockford and Ogle County in Illinois.
