A federal search warrant executed at an Ossian residence over a year ago, has now culminated in the arrest of another Northeast Iowa resident.


25 year old Chase Heying of Ossian was taken into custody last Thursday (Oct. 18) by the Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office. Heying was charged with 2 counts of felony Conspiracy to Deliver Heroin, and Failure to Affix a Drug Tax Stamp.

On June 6 of 2017, authorities carried out several federal search warrants in Ossian, from a lengthy, multi-agency investigation. Local, state, and federal agencies, with the assistance of the Winneshiek County Attorney's Office were involved.

A month later, in July of 2017, Kaleb Breitsprecher and Cole Breitsprecher were indicted by a federal grand jury. Kaleb was indicted for multiple counts of distribution of heroin and fentanyl, and possession of firearms by a drug user. Cole was indicted on similar charges.

Following the arrest of Chase Heying last week, authorities indicate that another arrest is still pending in this case.
