A man and a woman are in custody after deputies with the
Washington County Sheriff’s Office found drugs in a child’s toy purse earlier

and a 35-year-old woman from Lomira were taken into custody on October 6th
after a traffic stop in the Town of Polk. Reports say both the man and woman had warrants out for their
arrest, and when deputies searched the vehicle – they found a children’s bag
with razor blades and fentanyl residue inside, along with other drug
paraphernalia. The release said another container of white powder residue was
found in the toy purse, and marijuana was also found in the car. Later, a body
scanner found the woman was hiding more fentanyl inside her body. Both the man
and woman now face felony drug charges. Even though the child was not present, child
