LUCERNE – Law enforcement officials arrested a Lucerne man as part of a drug investigation that took place late Monday afternoon.

Arrested was Alan Wayne Monroe, 55, a mechanic from Lucerne, according to Lake County Jail booking records.

Monroe was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance for sale, with bail set at $10,000.

On Ninth Avenue, at the side of the creek that runs through town and across the street from residences, Lake County Narcotic Task Force members had handcuffed Monroe and four other subjects – two males and two females – while an investigation took place nearby.

Task Force member Steve Ladeck said they were releasing the other four subjects.

Ladeck said he had no other information to release Monday, as the investigation was continuing.
