Milwaukee Drug kingpin Chauncey Griffin had $1-million when arrested

35-year-old Chauncey Griffin had $1-million in cash and at least 37 guns when he was arrested last month. He is the suspected leader of a massive heroin and cocaine ring in Milwaukee. Griffin faces 18 charges ranging from drugs and illegally carrying guns to conspiracy to making a firebomb.

He is accused of being the main supplier for nearly two dozen drug dealers in the area. Griffin was one of 23 people arrested as part of a months-long drug investigation. Police described him as a 'kilo' level dealer of cocaine and heroin.
Authorities searched a storage unit linked to Griffin and found a BWM with 2 kilograms of fentanyl-laced heroin in the trunk, and pure fentanyl.

In another storage facility they found 34 guns of various kinds, between $800,000 and $900,000 and photos of Griffin posing with the cash. Two presses were seized. These were used to press cocaine and heroin that had been cut with buff. Griffin remains jailed.
