More arrests/names released in federal bust:
The federal heroin suspects in Thursday night’s Crossroads bust are 34-year-old Julaine Nicole Mankowski and 29-year-old Sara Ann Turner, both of the Marquette area.
Both were arrested by police last night at the Crossroads location on M-553 at CR-480 in Sands Township following a local, state and federal drug investigation.
While numerous law enforcement agencies assisted in the bust – the federal heroin suspects Julaine Nicole Mankowski and Sara Ann Turner were arrested of the sealed federal warrants by UPSET agent Mark Hanes in Marquette, MI.
In February 2016, Mankowski of 1911 Bancroft St. in Marquette, pleaded to a 20-year state felony charge of delivery of less than 50 grams of heroin less between February and April 2015 in Marquette. Her sentence on that charge is unclear. It appears she was released in February shortly after sentencing.
The information was released by order of a federal judge.

And another baby is there – but hopefully to young to remember what transpired in a dramatic arrest. That baby was turned over to the grandmother – Turner’s mom.
Around 8 p.m. (Thurs., Nov. 17, 2016) , an investigator radio Marquette County 911 Central Dispatch stating that he had spotted a car with a suspect who had felony warrants and it was headed south on McClellan Street near the Pioneer Park in Marquette. The investigator said the car was likely enroute to K.I. Sawyer (KIS).
Marked patrol cars from several agencies zoomed toward the Crossroads from Harvey and all directions including from the Marquette Police Department.
The vehicle with two females inside was pulled over in a parking lot near the well-known “Crossroads” intersection of County Road 553 and County Road 480.
A federal warrant was outstanding for a 29-year-old Marquette County woman with ties to KIS and Ishpeming. Both KIS and Ishpeming have a huge heroin problem along with meth and pain pills.
The federal felony warrants charge include distribution of heroin and conspiracy to distribute heroin and schedule I drugs. Both women are lodged in the Marquette County Jail.
