Fond du Lac K9 hits on major drug bust | By Fond du Lac County Sheriff

December 4, 2023 – Fond du Lac Co., WI – On Sunday morning around 11am, a vigilant deputy came into contact with what he thought was just going to be a disabled vehicle, but he soon realized there was more to the story.

At the same time the deputy was making contact with the occupants of the vehicle, a nearby business called to report a suspicious person had just used the bathroom and that the bathroom now smelled like marijuana.

The employee checked the bathroom and found marijuana and some candy-like pills, later confirmed to be ecstasy, had been left behind. It was confirmed that the driver of the vehicle was the same subject that had just left the store.

K9 Ace responded to the scene and alerted on the vehicle, and a search was conducted. Inside, deputies located cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, and both the adult male and adult female occupants of the vehicle were arrested for multiple drug related charges.

The male was also arrested for felony bail jumping, as he was out on bond through Winnebago County for felon in possession of a firearm and possession of amphetamine/LSD/psilocin – repeat offender.

Both suspects also have lengthy criminal histories, and they were transported and booked into the Fond du Lac County Jail.

As is often the case, deputies never know what they will encounter next, and even on a Sunday morning they’ll encounter and hold accountable those who distribute drugs in our community.

Great work by the deputies involved, the K9, and the business employee who immediately reported the suspicious activity.
