MERRILL, WI (WSAU)
Two Wausau men are in the Lincoln County Jail after a traffic stop early Sunday morning in the Town of Rock Falls. A Lincoln County Deputy stopped a vehicle on US Hwy 51 near County Rd H just after 4:00 AM after he observed the vehicle operating left of the center line.
During the stop the Deputy noted the strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and saw marijuana in plain view. During a search Deputies discovered over a ¼ pound of marijuana and seized over $2000 in cash.
19-year-old Kellen M. Slagowski and 19-year-old Hunter T. Chrouser have been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The driver was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and will be cited for operating left of center, driving on a suspended license and with no insurance.
Both will have bond hearings Tuesday in Lincoln County Court.
