Jesse Jackson, 36, and Ashley White, 31, were taken into custody on multiple drug charges, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
On May 27, detectives in Crandon spotted a vehicle that had been stolen out of Ashland County. The suspects were believed to be armed and in possession of drugs.
Officers from Crandon and Forest County performed a high risk traffic stop and arrested Jackson and White.
A search of Jackson turned up “several bindles” of the powerful opioid fentanyl, according to investigators.
Officers found meth and drug paraphernalia on White.
A search of the vehicle turned up more meth, fentanyl, suboxone, prescription pills, loaded meth syringes, digital scales, packaging material and drug paraphernalia.
Once at jail, Ashley White became “incoherent,” police say. She was treated for a possible drug overdose. Investigators say she had “fentanyl concealed on her person.”
Jackson and White are facing multiple charges, including delivery and possession.
Jackson, a Lac du Flambeau resident, and White, a Milwaukee resident, are being held on $15,000 cash bonds.
