Three individuals from outside Crawford County are facing drug charges after the county’s K-9 unit stopped a suspicious vehicle in the village of Gays Mills last week, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
The K-9 officer was patrolling Nov. 21, when he observed a 1994 Chevrolet Astro van that, when it pulled onto Rebecca Street, the driver turned off the headlights. The deputy made contact with the vehicle and found three occupants all hiding in the rear of the van. The occupants were identified as David Roberts, 34, and Brandy Robinson, 39, both from La Crosse, and Cassandra Neff, 30, of Fennimore. Roberts and Neff were both discovered to be on active probation for possession of methamphetamine, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

K-9 Breck made a vehicle sniff and alerted to the presence of one or more controlled substances. Roberts was found to be in possession of approximately a quarter  ounce of meth. Also located in the vehicle were several plastic baggies with white residue, a small plastic bag of powdered meth, a meth smoking device and two hypodermic needles with liquid meth.

Roberts was consequently arrested and charged with operating with a restricted controlled substance-first offense, possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Neff was arrested and also charged with operating with a restricted controlled substance 3rd offense, party to a crime-possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and operating after revocation.

Robinson was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
