BARABOO, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a man jailed in Sauk County ran a drug operation from his cell with his girlfriend working as a distributor.

The Baraboo News Republic (http://bit.ly/1a1L3Gi) reports 52-year-old Mardi T. Suggs and his girlfriend, 49-year-old Sherry A. Fuller, face multiple felony charges. According to authorities, Fuller told investigators that she took over a cocaine dealing operation from Suggs, and she said he was running it from jail.

A police detective said he verified the drug operation arrangement in recorded jail phone calls between Fuller and Suggs.

Authorities say police got a tip in October that Fuller had traveled to Chicago to get large amounts of cocaine, and that she then sold it in the Baraboo area. Police say more than 60 grams of cocaine was taken from her vehicle’s trunk after a trip to Chicago.

Confidential informants bought cocaine from Fuller in February outside a Lake Delton gas station and in the parking lot of a Baraboo hospital, according to court documents.

An attorney is not listed for Suggs in court documents. A message seeking comment was left with an attorney listed for Fuller.
