Large-scale methamphetamine bust at Appleton area hotel

GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a drug raid at a hotel near Appleton could be the largest methamphetamine bust ever in northeastern Wisconsin.

Brown County District Attorney David Lasee said Tuesday night the seizure of about 60 pounds (27.2 kilograms) of meth has put a “serious dent” in the region’s supply.

Authorities say the drugs were found in a guest room at the Wingate by Wyndham in Grand Chute last month. Police also seized about 2 pounds (0.9 kilograms) of heroin or fentanyl and a handgun.

Twenty-six-year-old Derek Liebergen, of Kaukauna, is facing federal charges of possession with intent to distribute the drugs.

Press-Gazette Media reports Lasee says the drug bust shut down the flow of meth into the region for now.
