MADISON — On Friday, February 3, 2012, Special Agents from the Department of Justice (DOJ), Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), along with law enforcement officers from Berlin Police Department, executed an arrest warrant at the home of James D. Rose in the City of Berlin, in Green Lake County, WI.

The charges are the culmination of two months of investigation surrounding Rose's travel to Berlin, WI, from Anchorage, AK.
