Undercover Heroin Bust Leads to Arrests of Familiar Faces
Sussex woman part of trio busted by the Waukesha Police Department for selling heroin to an undercover police officer and informant on several occasions.
A Sussex woman and two men are facing multiple felony charges after they allegedly sold heroin to undercover Waukesha police officers on several occasions since June.
Ada Lala, 23, of Sussex, Tony Malkiewicz, 27, of Colagate, and Robert L. Orrey, 42, of Milwaukee, were charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Tuesday with 13 different drug related charges. If convicted, Lala faces up to 56 years in prison, Malkiewicz faces up to 29 years in prison and Orrey faces up to 47 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint:
On June 27, a police informant and undercover Waukesha police officer set up a deal with Orrey and Lala at an area residence. When the officers arrived at the residence, they gave the couple money so they could go into Milwaukee and purchase 10 bindles of heroin.
Lala said the informant and officer would get eight of the bindles and they also needed to hand over $10 for gas money.
"This time Lala and Orrey met the undercover officer in the parking lot of the Waukesha County Jail..."
Lala and Orrey left for Milwaukee and came back later with the drugs. Orrey told the officer to pick eight bindles, which he did, and then Lala and her sister immediately took the other two into the bathroom.
Lala asked the officer to trade bindles, but he refused, saying she charged him for gas. When she said she would only sell him four bindles, he said he would go find another source for heroin.
On July 3, the officer set up another buy with the couple, where they agreed to take $200 into Milwaukee and buy heroin. This time Lala and Orrey met the undercover officer in the parking lot of the Waukesha County Jail, and after getting the money, they met back at the residence where they delivered 16 bindles of heroin.
On July 31, a third deal was set up where the officer met Malkiewicz and Lala in the parking lot of a Waukesha business. The officer gave them $100, the couple then took the money into Milwaukee and came back later with 10 bindles of heroin.
"And this isn't the first time Lala and Orrey have been on Sussex Patch..."
Another deal took place on Aug. 8 when the officer met up with the dealers, and all three were in a car in the parking lot of a Waukesha gas station. They again got $200 worth of heroin for the officer.
A final deal was set up Aug. 14, where Malkiewicz was supposed to buy $400 worth of heroin for the officer, but he never came back with the drugs. He was later found at his residence in Colgate with Lala and the two were arrested.
And this isn't the first time Lala and Orrey have been on Sussex Patch. Back in July, Lala allegedly Orrey him smuggle her some heroin and a heroin kit while she was staying in the Waukesha County Mental Health Facility. Orrey was also caught stealing scrap metal valued at $700 in January.
Malkiewicz and Lala are currently being held in jail on $10,000 bail while awaiting trial.
