On Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 9:50 p.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a stolen vehicle from La Crosse. The stolen vehicle was located by a Crawford County deputy at a residence off of State Highway 35, in the township of Freeman.

A 2005 Chevy Cobalt owned by Mark D. Olson, 39, La Crosse, was taken from his residence. Michelle L. Peck, 35, La Crosse, was found to be in possession of the stolen car. 

During the investigation multiple items of drug paraphernalia were found throughout the car. More than 50 used hypodermic needles were found in the car. Needles were found throughout the front of the car as well as a container in the rear of the car which was more than half full of used needles. Tests showed a positive result for methamphetamine. 

Multiple items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine were found in the vehicle as well. These items were found together in a bag next to the needles. Property belonging to both Peck and Olson was within the car, and both had a history of sharing the car previously. 

Peck was arrested. Possible charges include possessing materials for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine. Peck also received a citation for operating after suspension and possession of marijuana. Peck faces subsequent charges in La Crosse for operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent.

Mark Olson will be referred to the Crawford County District Attorney for possible charges of possessing materials for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine.  

Assisting on scene was Milo’s Towing, of Prairie du Chien.
