A drug investigation into heroin dealing in the Madison area resulted in arrest of two men who allegedly brought in large quantities of the drug to sell to smaller operators.

Cory Alexander, 40, Sun Prairie, and Tory Latham, 39, town of Madison, were arrested June 26 on tentative charges of possession of heroin with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug dwelling, Madison police said.

The Dane County Narcotics Task Force, with help from the state Division of Criminal Investigation, searched Alexander's home on Essex Drive in Sun Prairie and Latham's home on Hazelwood Court in the town of Madison.

"The agents and officers seized 419 grams of heroin with a street value of $58,520, eight guns and more than $3,000 in cash," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

"The suspects are accused of bringing larger quantities of heroin into the areas and selling it - in smaller amounts - to other drug dealers," DeSpain said.
