Duluth police say that four people have been charged for heroin-related crimes after three separate arrests were made last week.

Investigators with the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, along with the Duluth Police Department arrested two 23-year-olds on February 13th.

Authorities say Jesse Lee Mueller and Haley June Engstad, both of Duluth, were arrested in a school zone in the Piedmont Heights neighborhood.

Both were charged with second-degree sale of a controlled substance.

Police say both are on probation for prior felony convictions.

The next day, February 14th, officers executed two search warrants in the Piedmont and Duluth Heights neighborhoods resulting in two more arrests.

The first warrant was executed at a hotel in the Duluth Heights neighborhood.

Police say 29-year-old Victor Lonzell Wallace, of Des Plaines, Ill., was found in possession of about 35 grams of heroin, cash, and other evidence.

Wallace is charged with a first-degree controlled substance crime.

Also on Feb. 14th, investigators executed another search warrant on the 2200 block of Catskill St.

Police say they found additional drug trafficking evidence and cash linked to the heroin located in the warrant served at the hotel.

37-year-old Amber Kathleen Weir, of Duluth, was subsequently arrested and is now charged with first-degree sale of heroin and child endangerment.
