Running out of gas causes more problems for teen

At 10:35 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23 an officer on routine patrol noticed a disabled vehicle on the side of southbound Carmichael Road with its flashers activated. The officer pulled over to assist the vehicle. The driver said she had run out of gas and was waiting for her mother to arrive. While speaking with the juvenile driver, the officer noticed a strong smell of marijuana from the vehicle. The driver initially denied having any in the vehicle but said she had smoked some about three hours ago at a friend's house in Minnesota. She later said there might be residue of marijuana in the vehicle. The officer did a probable cause search of the vehicle and found loose marijuana residue, marijuana stems, a glass smoking pipe with burnt residue inside and a vape e-cigarette. After reading her her rights, the officer asked the driver about the items. She said the pipe was a friend's, and that she was aware of the e-cigarette. When her mother arrived on scene, the driver was informed she could not operate the vehicle based on her statements of recently smoking marijuana. She was issued citations for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Harassment reported

• On Tuesday, Jan. 30, harassment was reported by a woman living on Coulee Road. She said her ex-boyfriend, and the father of her child, was harassing her. He was arrested last year for vandalizing her apartment and she said the judge then ordered a no contact order on him. She said the ex began calling and texting her again when he got out of jail last summer. She told him two weeks ago she would call the police if he didn't leave her alone. He texted her again on Friday, Jan. 26 telling her he loved her. No court order or protection order was on file in St. Croix County. An officer told her she would have to come to the department to fill out a written statement and provide dates and text messages.

• At 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 31 a man reported harassing text messages from a woman that morning. He said the woman has a restraining order against him. He said he was in the garage when his mother saw a text to his phone from the woman, and she answered it. The woman said a detective was at her door, and she blamed him for it. He said he did not respond to the text and wanted the contact to stop. He said he would be changing his phone number. An officer attempted to contact the woman but her voicemail was full.


At 10:55 a.m. Wednesday, April Branville, 26, Baldwin, was arrested for a probation violation at the probation office on O'Neil Road.
