A 28-year-old man is charged with narcotics possession after police say they found heroin and prescription drugs in his backpack.
Trinity Dankemeyer, of Nekoosa, is charged with possession of narcotics and possession of a controlled substance. According to police reports on May 27, 2015, an officer was dispatched to the area of 7th St. South and Miller Ave. regarding information on a warrant out for Dankemeyer’s arrest.
Police eventually found Dankemeyer by Daly Ave. in Wisconsin Rapids, and made an arrest. While in custody, police discovered syringes in Dankemeyer’s possession which contained a liquid substance.
Dankemeyer allegedly admitted that this substance was heroin. Also in his possession were Adderall pills, though Dankemeyer claimed he did not know that the pills were in his backpack. Tests would later confirm the substances found in the syringe was heroin.
If convicted, Dankemeyer faces up to three years and six months imprisonment, and up to $10,000 in fines. Dankemeyer also faces charges of bail jumping and resisting arrest. A plea hearing was held on Mar. 28, and future court dates are pending.
