Anonymous Reports Led to Huge Drug Bust During Traffic Stop

A Wisconsin man was arrested for multiple drug offenses and violation of probation after several anonymous calls about his taking part in drug activity were received by the authorities.

According to reports, at the beginning of the month, someone called the Middleton Police Investigative Services Bureau and reported that they knew of a man in the area involved in drug activity. Shortly after, several other people began calling to report the same individual. An investigation into the claims was opened.

With the help of the information provided by the callers, the authorities tracked down a man that they believed was the party of interest. When checking his identity, the police found out he was currently on state-ordered probation.

On March 20, the police saw a vehicle being driven by the man they were looking for. They performed a traffic stop and they searched the interior of the car. It was reported that they found 2 pounds of marijuana, 90 grams of oxycodone, 255 grams (about 8.99 oz) of fentanyl, and 68 grams of cocaine base.

The suspect was taken into custody. He was transported and booked into the Dane County Jail on suspicion of several charges, including two counts of possession with intent to sell over 50 grams of fentanyl, one count of possession with intent to deliver between 1000 and 2500 grams (about 5.51 lb.) of THC, one count of possession with intent to deliver up to 200 grams of THC, one count of possession with intent to deliver between 40 and 100 grams of cocaine,  one count of possession with intent to deliver narcotics, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, and a charge for violating probation. According to records, no bail amount or projected release date was displayed.
