On Oct. 20, a Crawford County deputy conducted a traffic stop on a white 2000 Chevy Silverado in the city of Prairie du Chien for failing to stop for a stop sign. The deputy identified the driver as Kristian Tesar, 24, Prairie du Chien, and the front passenger as Raymond McCullick, 30, of Prairie du Chien. 

During the course of the traffic stop, Tesar displayed indicators of narcotics impairment and was asked to exit the vehicle for field sobriety testing. The Crawford County K9 unit arrived and deployed K9 Breck around the exterior of the vehicle and received a positive alert to the presence of one or more controlled substances within the vehicle. A probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted and yielded numerous methamphetamine paraphernalia items, a black BB gun handgun with the orange safety tip removed and a clear plastic bag containing a white crystal like substance. The white crystal like substance later field tested positive for methamphetamine. 

Tesar failed field sobriety testing and was taken into custody on suspicion of operating with a restricted controlled substance, first offense. McCullick is on probation through the state of Wisconsin for prior methamphetamine charges and was taken into custody on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of meth paraphernalia and a probation violation. Assisting with the traffic stop was Milo’s Towing and the Prairie du Chien Police Department.
