Three individuals from outside Crawford County are facing drug charges after the county’s K-9 unit stopped a suspicious vehicle in the village of Gays Mills last week, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
The K-9 officer was patrolling Nov. 21, when he observed a 1994 Chevrolet Astro van that, when it pulled onto Rebecca Street, the driver turned off the headlights. The deputy made contact with the vehicle and found three occupants all hiding in the rear of the van. The occupants were identified as David Roberts, 34, and Brandy Robinson, 39, both from La Crosse, and Cassandra Neff, 30, of Fennimore. Roberts and Neff were both discovered to be on active probation for possession of methamphetamine, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.
