Trempealeau Co. K-9 leads to pair of drug arrests in one day

K-9 Leo finds drugs in two traffic stops

TREMPEALEAU COUNTY, Wis. (WKBT) - The work of a K-9 in Trempealeau County leads to two drug-related arrests in less than 24 hours.

25-year-old Kayla Johnson of Elk Mound and 23-year-old Nathaniel Young of Eau Claire were arrested at about 1:20 Monday morning near Whitehall.

A Treampealeau County Sheriff's Deputy stopped their car for speeding on Highway 53. A K-9 named Leo alerted the officer of drugs in the car, and a search turned up three needles containing meth and with 3 grams of cocaine. Both Johnson and Young were taken to the Trempealeau County jail.

Later that day, a car carrying 44-year-old Joseph Tremain and 26-year-old Quinn Vanderbosch from the Minneapolis suburb of Richfield were stopped for speeding in Osseo.

Leo again alerted officers of the presence of drugs, and that search led to the discovery of 18 grams of meth and several viles of GHB, commonly referred to as a date rape drug.

Tremain and Vanderbosch were also taken to the county jail and are awaiting charges.
