K-9 Breck sits behind evidence seized during a meth bust on Nov. 10. (Photo submitted)

On Nov. 10, at 12:50 a.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit saw a 2002 Jeep operating on Church Street in the village of Soldiers Grove. The Jeep was swerving within its lane and traveling at a slow rate of speed. The operator of the Jeep, upon seeing the deputy, drove onto Bugle Street, left the vehicle parked in the roadway and attempted to hide near a residence. The deputy contacted the driver, identified as Travis Johnson, 31, Gays Mills, who had his pants undone due to attempting to conceal contraband. Johnson exhibited indicators of drug impairment and is on active parole through the state of Wisconsin for delivery of methamphetamine. 

K-9 Breck was utilized for an open free air sniff of the vehicle and gave a positive alert to the presence of one or more controlled substances within the vehicle. A search of the vehicle yielded a bag containing approximately 2.7 ounces of suspected psilocybin mushrooms, approximately one gram of suspected Fentanyl, several hypodermic needles, numerous small plastic baggies, digital scales, one of which was coated in crystal like substance and numerous cell phones.

The deputy located two plastic baggies containing several large chunks of crystal-like substance near where Johnson was hiding. The crystal substance field tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed approximately 5.7 ounces.

Johnson was transported to the Crawford County Jail. Possible charges include possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine between 50-200 grams, possession with intent to deliver psilocybin mushrooms, possession of Schedule II narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating with a restricted controlled substance (first offense) and probation violation.
