A Fredonia man has been charged with possessing prescription drugs with intent to sell after police allegedly found pills in his car and evidence he had recently sold a large number of pills.

According to a criminal complaint filed last week in Ozaukee County Circuit Court:

Police stopped a car being driven by Jacob P. Moeller, 21, in the City of Cedarburg on Aug. 7. An officer smelled marijuana coming from the car and saw a small plastic bag protruding from Moeller’s pants pocket.

The bag contained about one gram of a green leafy substance, which later proved positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. 

Inside the car, police also found two pipes, another bag containing 10 grams of marijuana, a bag containing about 35 pills of Xanax, one prescription bottle with three methocarbamol pills, an empty pill bottle labeled Mirtazapin, $800 in 20 dollar bills under the driver’s seat and another $550 in his wallet.

When questioned, Moeller told police he had just sold 600 Xanax pills and was on his way to possibly sell another 100. He gave police permission to search through his phone, on which they found text messages indicating he had just made a drug sale and was making arrangements for another.

Records show that Moeller was arrested on July 24 after a traffic stop on Highway 57 at Mink Ranch Road in the Town of Saukville and found in possession of 14 Xanax pills.

Moeller is charged with felony possession of a schedule IV drug with intent to deliver and misdemeanor possession of THC and drug paraphernalia.

If convicted on all counts, he could be sentenced up to six years and seven months behind bars. Bail was set at $10,000.
