but it just didn’t pass the sniff test

On June 13th, 2018 at approximately 2:30 am, The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department’s K-9 unit, along with a Prairie du Chien Officer, made contact with a vehicle that was parked at a business after their hours of operation in the City of Prairie du Chien. 
   Upon Officers arrival, several occupants exited the 2003 Mitsubishi Montero and gave conflicting stories as to why they were in town and how they knew each other. The occupants were identified as Colin Schneider, age 26, of Muscoda, Paige Bell, age 21 of Lone Rock, Dakota Lins, age 23 of Gotham and Treagir Sander, age 18 of Boscobel.
   Sander attempted to lie about his identity and all three males exhibited signs of drug impairment. K-9 Breck was utilized for an open free sniff of the vehicle and alerted to the presence of one or more controlled substances within the vehicle.  A search of the vehicle yielded a glass smoking device used to ingest methamphetamine, which was determined to belong to Sander. Sander was subsequently arrested for obstructing justice, possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia, and Felony Bail Jumping for several drug charges stemming from other counties. Sander also had an active warrant for his arrest.
   Schneider was placed under arrest for operating with a restricted controlled substance 1st offense. Both Sander and Schneider were transported to the Crawford County Jail.
