A man and two women were arrested in a heroin investigation that involved 10 different municipalities, according to the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office.

According to criminal complaints, Corey B. Jerome, 35, of Westfield, met with an undercover officer on May 14 at a restaurant in Westfield where the officer bought heroin from Jerome. Jerome was arrested on suspicion of delivery of heroin.

Jerome’s sister, Christel R. Jerome, 36, of Wisconsin Rapids, was arrested on suspicion of party to a crime of delivery of heroin. Police said she arranged the undercover officer’s meeting with her brother.
