Day begins with accusations of drug crimes in Wisconsin

Police were inside the home of two people in Wisconsin on a recent Sunday morning. Sundays are often associated with rest and relaxation, church services and other family traditions. However, this particular Sunday was anything but enjoyable for the couple in question, who are now facing charges regarding suspected drug crimes. One can only imagine the sudden shock of unexpectedly finding police officers bursting into one's home.

However, that seems to be what occurred when officers showed up unannounced and reportedly made an aggressive entrance into the couple's home. They apparently did not even knock on the door before going inside. This tactic is sometimes referred to as a no-knock search. It was not long after midnight when police began their search. Authorities say there was already an active warrant out against the husband regarding supposed weapons violations.  

Investigators claim the couple was housing approximately 90 grams of methamphetamine, which police say they seized from the premises. Police placed children who were inside the home at the time in the temporary custody of a county human services department. The children were reportedly later handed over to extended family members of the defendants.  

The man and woman were charged with drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officials say an investigation remains open at this time. No Wisconsin resident can ever be convicted of drug crimes or any other criminal offense without being given an opportunity to present a defense. Most defendants rely on experienced legal representation to act on their behalves in court.
