Alpena, Mich. — Three overdoses in three days launched an investigation by the Huron Undercover Narcotics Team which resulted in three arrests.

Between February 15th and February 17th, three people overdosed in the city. Enough information was gathered to single out one residence and the people responsible. Authorities arrested 21-year-old Aaron Bissonette of Alpena on March 4. Bissonette was charged  with delivery of suboxone, conspiracy to deliver heroin and maintaining a drug house.

The investigation led to an apartment that Bissonette was renting. According to investigators, Bissonette had been letting a number of associates stay with her. H.U.N.T conducted a search warrant at an apartment in the 1000 block of W. Washington Ave on the evening of March 5.

They  arrested 28-year-old Chasity Wolff of Lansing and 33-year-old Milton Baytops of Flint. Wolff was charged with conspiracy to deliver heroin. Baytops was charged with two counts of delivery of heroin and conspiracy to deliver heroin. The Flint man was on parole with the Michigan Department of Correction’s Detroit Office.

All three were arraigned on Monday. A field substance test of the seized substances  from the residence indicated the possible presence of Fentanyl.

H.U.N.T. was assisted by Michigan State Police Emergency Services Team, Michigan State Police’s K9 Unit, Michigan State Police Alpena Post, and the Alpena City Fire Department. Citizens are encouraged to contact H.U.N.T. with tips regarding drug dealing at 1-800-573-DRUG.
