Drug Arrest

A 48-year-old Fond du Lac man is facing drug and resisting arrest charges following a traffic stop late Thursday night. Police says the stop was conducted in the area of North Seymour and Thomas Streets after a police officer witnessed suspicious activity and learned the owner of the vehicle had a revoked driver’s license. A K9 unit was called to assist and the dog indicated the possible presence of drugs in the car. During a subsequent search 34 baggies of crack cocaine, 3 grams of marijuana and other miscellaneous drug paraphernalia were found.  The driver of the vehicle then took off on foot, but was caught after a short foot chase. He was taken to the Fond du Lac County Jail. Officers learned the man was staying at a local hotel.  They spoke with a 29-year-old Fond du Lac woman in the room about the incident and arrested her for violating bond conditions from a prior arrest.  She also was taken to the County Jail.
