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 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. , 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  valued at $700 in January.

Malkiewicz and Lala are currently being held in jail on $10,000 bail while awaiting trial.

C. Lipton, You're correct the dealer didn't seek out my son, nor did he seek them. As I stated in my post on 8/29 he was introduced to a herion dealer by his cousin who is one of the 3 arrested in this bust and although my son had no interest in doing such a dangerous drug he always had very low self esteem and always caved in to peer pressure. Some of these dealers can be very intimadating and threatening especially to a person who desperately wants to fit in. As far as not having any sympathy well I stand by that comment for a number of reasons. First of all any addict knows how much their lives have been changed by doing this drug so why on Gods earth would they want to introduce it to and or ruin someone else life, secondly this cousin has been in and out of jail / prison for drugs and theft for the past 7 years as a matter of fact was just released in May and started right back up in June according to the article. As far as your comment stating that maybe I should try and help so they learn from others mistakes is truly off the mark as one would think that knowing your cousin died from this should have served as a lesson and or wakeup call in its self. The only way I can help make sure another family does not go through the heartache I live with is to make sure that they stay locked up and off our streets.

Nicole, Please read my comment to C. Lipton. Sometimes there are circumstances where we can put the initial blame on others. To put this into a different perspective lets say an adult purchases alcohol for underage high school kids and those kids get drunk then get behind the wheel of a car and kill either themselves or another innocent person / family while driving do you really feel the person who provided the alcohol to these kids are not partially blame?

Robert Orrey is a convicted sex offender, theif and now drug dealer. He belongs locked away for life. What happenned to "three strikes and you're out"? Just because he hasn't hit the "big time" doesn't mean he won't. Some people are naive and think that he is harmless, when he is poison. He ruins everything he touches, and all of you that say Ada was polite and respectful, was this before she met Robert? My guess would be yes. Let that scum rot there for the rest of his sorry worthless miserable life.

And to all of you that thought Ada Lala was going to sit the rest of her life in prison, you are all pathetic and definitely wrong. Because she will be back out in 7months, so sorry to all you nosey ass people but she def. wont be going to prison anytime soon!!

It's a sad story for all the people and the families involved. What's important is for the individuals to get the help they need. As for blaming cousins for other cousins deaths is absurd. To say that they deserve to be locked up forever is more like a revenge seeking thrill "Just Saying". Hopefully everyone learns from these unfortunate circumstances and people stop living this "I blame someone else for their problems and move on with their lives".
