LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse police say they've arrested two repeat drug dealers who were carrying more than $30,000 in meth.

Police arrested 32-year-old Brandon Smith and 25-year-old Jordan Hammel Wednesday afternoon on the northside when they ran from their vehicle after seeing a police squad car.

A police K-9 uncovered 11 ounces of meth in the car, which has an estimated street value of $30,300. Officers also found a loaded stolen handgun under the driver's seat and more than $1700 in cash on Smith when he was arrested.

Smith has been arrested four times in the past 10 years for possession with intent to deliver, while Hammel has been arrested 3 times on those charges this year alone.
