A fifth person has been arrested in connection with a multi-million dollar THC vaping operation in southern Wisconsin.
Police say 22-year-old Jordan Lynam, of Racine, is in custody and is likely to appear in court as early as Oct. 17.
Police in September seized about 31,200 vape cartridges containing about 1 gram of THC each, about 98,000 unfilled vape cartridges, 57 Mason jars filled with 1,616 ounces of refined liquid THC, about 18.5 pounds of marijuana, three money-counting machines and other drug paraphernalia allegedly used to produce the cartridges at a Kenosha County home.
Taylor and Jacob Huffhines were arrested and charged in September. Their mother, Courtney Huffhines, was also arrested on drug trafficking charges. Hannah Curty, 19, was also arrested in connection with the operation, which Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth called the “largest of its kind.”
