BURLINGTON — A 28-year-old man was arrested after being found with various drugs and drug-related paraphernalia during a traffic stop on Saturday, Aug. 17.
Just before 1 a.m., deputies in the Town of Burlington stopped a vehicle that was traveling at 73 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone on State Highway 36 near State Highway142.
While speaking with the driver, deputies noticed a case of beer behind the driver, and began a field interview with the individual. While conducting the interview, a K-9 officer walked around the vehicle.
The K-9 indicated the presence of narcotics inside the vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a plethora of drugs and drug paraphernalia, sheriff’s officials said.
The operator, a Franklin man, 28, said everything in the vehicle was his, and that he consumes all the various types of drugs that were in his vehicle.
The drugs that were able to be identified were cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, and marijuana dabs. There were also several items that were unable to be tested that the man called “research drugs that are available on the internet.”
Along with the various drugs, the man had a digital scale, packaging materials, pipes, lighters, filters, blank capsules that he said he fills with various drugs when he doesn’t want to smoke or inject the drugs, five vials of Narcan, cookers, needles, tourniquets, and cotton balls. He said the materials were all used in the consumption of the various drugs he had.
The man was arrested and held at the Racine County Jail on the following charges:
- Possession with intent to deliver cocaine
- Possession with intent to deliver THC
- Possession of narcotic drugs
