Man with children in vehicle arrested on multiple drug charges | By Fond du Lac Co. Sheriff

March 7, 2024 – Fond du Lac Co., WI –  A Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle for speeding on I41 this month. The 35-year-old Oshkosh man operating the vehicle was on probation for manufacture/delivery of cocaine and had a lengthy criminal history of drug related convictions.

Two juveniles were also in the vehicle, and the vehicle was searched after the deputy spotted drug paraphernalia in plain sight.

During the search, five ounces of crack cocaine was located near the children. A jar of marijuana and significant amount of cash was also located, and the driver was found to be under the influence.

The driver was arrested for possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of THC 2nd+ offense, contributing to neglect of child-exposure to drugs, and OWI 1st offense with an enhancer for having a passenger under 16. The two juveniles were released to the custody of a responsible adult.

Suspected drug trafficking, operating while intoxicated, and children in the vehicle were a combination ripe for tragedy. Great work by our deputy who identified these risks and removed the children from this dangerous situation.
