Siblings accused of running $14K worth of heroin from Chicago

MADISON, Wis. - A pair of siblings are accused of running thousands of dollars worth of drugs Friday from Chicago to Madison, police said. 

Madison police said 59-year-old Keith T. Moore and his brother, 54-year-old Dwayne Moore, both of Madison, were stopped on Interstate 90 at 11:39 p.m. in a car containing more than 98 grams of heroin with a street value estimated at $14,700.

Police said Keith and Dwayne Moore were coming back from Chicago, and the interdiction was the result of a drug investigation orchestrated by the Dane County Narcotics Task Force and the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation.

Keith Moore was arrested on suspicion of three counts of delivery of heroin, possession with intent to deliver heroin over 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.
