Investigators from the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office carried out several Valentine's Day search warrants, seizing drugs, cash and guns. The bust led to the arrest of nine suspects.

The searches marked the culmination of a three-month investigation by the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Department of Justice.
