UPDATE
Eau Claire (WQOW)
– One of four people caught in a sting by the West Central Drug Task Force will spend the next four months in jail.

Malik Bell was also placed on probation for four years by Judge John Manydeeds.

Bell and three others were charged after an informant made two meth buys earlier this year. In one of those cases, the informant was sold rock salt instead of meth.

The other three suspects will be in court in October.

Eau Claire (WQOW) –
A sting by the West Central Wisconsin Drug Task Force leads to charges against four area people.

Malik Bell, Brady Baumgarten, Anne Zezulka and Jack Sowden face charges related to the delivery of methamphetamine.

According to police, the task force provided a criminal informant with money to make two purchases of meth in May.

In the second buy, the substance did not test positive for the drug – instead, police later learned the informant was sold $100 worth of rock salt.

All four face charges of delivery of meth, among other charges.

The maximum penalty for delivery of methamphetamine is 12.5 years in prison.
