A search warrant has led to the arrest of two Nekoosa residents, who now face multiple drug charges.
According to police reports, on Dec. 10, a search warrant was executed at a residence on the 100 block of N. Section St. in Nekoosa. Inside, police identified 26-year-old Taylor Fischer, 24-year-old Brittany Fischer, and a 1-year-old child.
During the search, officers found a wallet with a plastic baggie inside containing methamphetamine in Brittany Fischer’s bedroom, as well as a black box containing numerous plastic baggies with white residue. It is noted that the wallet was easily in reach for a small child. Police also found marijuana in a compartment on the headboard.
In the dining area, a pipe used for methamphetamine was found on the kitchen table. According to the report, Brittany Fischer allegedly admitted that she and Taylor used methamphetamine and marijuana almost daily. She also told police that not only is drug use common in the residence, but that they are available for anyone to use.
If convicted, Brittany Fischer faces up to seven years imprisonment and up to $20,000 in fines for possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a drug trafficking place, and child neglect.
Taylor Fischer faces up to three years and six months imprisonment and $10,000 in fines for possession of methamphetamine. Their initial appearance in court is set for Jan. 9.
