Grant County Jail

Police found an infant in the home of Aaron Tatu, 56, Friday during a drug-related search of his Fennimore residence.

According to a Facebook post from the police department, officials found and removed drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine and firearms during the search and contacted the Grant County Department of Social Services in regards to the health and safety of an infant allegedly living with Tatu.

The search warrant was conducted months after Tatu received a letter delivered to him by the Fennimore Police Department. In the letter dated Feb. 26, 2017, Chief of Police Christopher J. French said the police department had received information regarding the use and sale of drugs by Tatu and members of his household and also suggests Tatu seek counseling rather than have law enforcement get involved.

Tatu was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug trafficking place.

Police say other suspects are still under investigation.
