LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse police say they have arrested a father-son team Monday in a Chicago-to-La Crosse drug trade.

According to the press release, investigators received an anonymous tip that Larry D. Baldwin, 47, and Larry A. Baldwin, 21, both of Chicago, would be transporting a large amount of drugs from Chicago to La Crosse.

Police located and followed Baldwin's car and pulled it over after observing several traffic violations, the release said. K-9 Luc alerted the police to something suspicious, and the men sped away, police said.

The car reached speeds of up to 70 mph until they reached the Schuh Home area on Winneshiek Road, where road spikes were used to stop the car, police said.

Officers say they searched the car and found $1,400 in cash and 64.1 grams of crack cocaine with an estimated street value of $6,000.

Police said this is the third time in the last 14 months that they have arrested Larry D. Baldwin on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver.

Larry D. Baldwin is charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine greater than 40 grams, bail-jumping and vehicle operator flee/elude - all felonies. 

Larry A. Baldwin is charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine greater than 40 grams.

The La Crosse County Clerk of Courts said Larry D. has a $10,000 cash bond with conditions of drug testing and GPS curfew and Larry A. has a $1,000 signature bond with conditions of drug testing and GPS curfew. Both are in court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
