MADISON (WKOW) — A suspected drug dealer attempted to destroy 50 grams of fentanyl-laced heroin Monday by throwing it into the air as authorities closed in.

Stanley Miles, 44, Madison, attempted to discard the drugs as the Town of Madison Police Department and members of the Dane County Narcotics Task Force served a search warrant on a Sherman Avenue apartment, located in the town of Madison.

Three officers were treated and released for exposure to the powerful synthetic opioid, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

The Madison Fire Department’s Hazardous Incident Team worked with state and federal partners to safely search the apartment wearing protective gear.

Police determined there was no general danger to the public because of the incident.

Miles, and another resident were taken into custody.

Between 50 and 100 grams of heroin – including what Miles tried to destroy – were seized. Agents also confiscated more than 37 grams of crack cocaine, 109 grams of THC, cell phones, a handgun, and over $1,400 cash.

The arrests are part of an ongoing DCNTF investigation.
