The numerous sale of these drugs took place in common public locations throughout Beaver Dam.

Sheriff’s officials called this arrest “a major break in supply of these dangerous and deadly drugs to our community.”

District Attorney Kurt Klomberg argued against lowering Lightfoot’s bail shortly after her arrest.

“She is from the Chicago area. She came here. She set up this drug operation. She refers to Beaver Dam as her city. This is her drug territory. She is a high level drug dealer. She has brought a tremendous amount of misery and destruction to our community and she has done so for profit,” Klomberg said.
