— Two Janesville men and a teen were arrested Wednesday after reports of arguing and an armed subject in the parking lot of an apartment complex on the city's east side.

Police were dispatched to 3704 Stuart St. after a drug complaint at 6:50 p.m. and a report of an armed subject at 7:20 p.m.


Police searched the building and found three males hiding in a basement storage unit, Sgt. Aaron Ellis said. The men had possession of a 12-gauge shotgun and handgun ammunition, but no handgun was found, he said.


After police executed a search warrant, they found a small amount of heroin, cocaine, marijuana and drug packaging materials, Ellis said.


Police arrested Craig Denson, 28, 3704 Stuart St., No. 5, Janesville, on charges of possession of cocaine, felony possession of marijuana, possession of heroin with intent to deliver, maintaining a drug trafficking place, possession of paraphernalia and resisting.


Denson appeared in Rock County Court on Thursday via video from the Rock County Jail. His bond was set at $1,250.


Police also arrested a 19-year-old Janesville man on outstanding warrants. A 16-year-old Janesville male was referred to juvenile authorities on a charge of resisting arrest.
