K-9 officer leads deputies to fentanyl, drug paraphernalia in children’s bag

A Washington County K-9 officer alerted deputies to drugs during a traffic stop in the town of Polk on Oct. 6.

When deputies searched the vehicle, they found a scale with a white powder on it.

The deputy found a purse with razor blades and fentanyl residue and other paraphernalia inside a children’s bag.

Another container with a white powder residue was located concealed inside of a children’s toy purse. Several other items, as well as marijuana, were located inside the car.

A 35-year-old Kewaskum man and a 35-year-old Lomira woman were arrested and face felony drug charges.

After they were taken to the Washington County Jail, officers noticed the woman was walking in a suspicious manner. She was put through a body scanner, which revealed that drugs were concealed inside of her along with an earring. A piece of fentanyl was recovered.

A child was not present at the time of the arrests, but the case was forwarded to child protective services.
