After attempting to sell a yellow pill in the parking lot at the Saukville Walmart, a 20 year-old-man was arrested for having 80 Ecstasy pills and 26.3 grams of cocaine. 

Police were called to Walmart at 6:36 a.m. Wednesday, April 11, after an individual attempted to sell the reporting party a yellow pill.  

Police discovered the suspect in a gray sports utility vehicle with a younger male driver also inside. 

When they approached the vehicle, officers observed a glass pipe with burned marks on one end of it in a cup holder. When the driver opened the door, he dropped syringes and a spoon with white powder on it.  

The suspect was identified as a 20-year-old Laona man. A search of the man uncovered a yellow pill in one of his pockets. The pill later tested positive for Ecstasy.  

A search of the vehicle also produced 26.3 grams of a white rock-like substance, that tested positive for cocaine and 80 pills that tested positive for Ecstasy.  

The man was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail, and the vehicle was impounded.     

Police asked the Ozaukee County district attorney to charge the man with possession of drug paraphernalia, intent to deliver a narcotic and possession with intent to deliver cocaine.  

In other incidents reported by police:

Officers were at a stop light on East Green Bay Avenue and North Foster Drive at 9:30 p.m. Friday, April 13, when a white sedan traveling in front of them failed to yield the right of way and collided with another vehicle.  

Police identified the driver of the sedan as a 34-year-old Milwaukee man who had a suspended license and an open case with bail restrictions to not operate a motor vehicle because he did not have a valid license.  

Charges for bail jumping are being forwarded to the Ozaukee County district attorney’s Office. 

The man was also issued traffic citations for operating while suspended (11th offense), displaying unauthorized registration plates, operating a motor vehicle without insurance and failure to yield.

Police were called to the 300 block of North Mill Street at 9:23 a.m., April 14, for a domestic disturbance.  

Officers made contact with a resident, a 28-year-old Saukville woman, and her boyfriend, a 39-year-old West Bend man.         Police noted the inside of the home was in disarray, with books and clothes strewn across the floor, a broken bookshelf and overturned fabric bins.  

Police said the man and woman were calm, but the woman was bleeding from a wrist. She declined medical treatment and said the cut was caused by a small piece of glass.  

According to police, the two got involved in an argument the night before over the woman’s ex-boyfriend being at the residence and wanting to fight the 39-year-old man. 

The 39-year-old man tried to leave the residence at that time, but lost his keys.  He eventually left the residence on foot and returned the next morning because he could not find the keys, and the disturbance ensued.  

Both subjects were issued disorderly conduct citations.

The man was escorted from the residence after finding two of four keys he said were missing.
