FDL County Sheriffs K9 Team Busts Stargazing Teens With Two Pounds Of Pot
Two Fond du Lac teens were arrested after two pounds of marijuana was found in their vehicle during a traffic stop on 7 Hills Road near Fond du Lac County Highway H last Friday night. Sheriff’s Deputy Justin Weisbecker and his K9 partner Koda conducted the stop in the Town of Empire. Seventeen-year-old Dakota Mueller and 18-year-old Spencer Owens gave the deputy a shaky story. They were acting suspiciously and said they were stargazing. But it was cloudy and the deputy told them he didn’t think they were out stargazing. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says the two knew they were in trouble when the deputy said he was part of a K9 unit. A search of the vehicle found four one gallon Ziploc bags full of marijuana that totaled just over two pounds in weight and was worth thousands of dollars. Owens and Mueller were charged Tuesday in County Court, Owens with felony possession and Mueller with a misdemeanor possession charge.
