A La Crosse woman faces multiple felony drug charges in Buffalo County after a traffic stop yielded what authorities described as potentially the largest seizure of methamphetamine following a traffic stop in the county.
Julie M. Dahlby, 32, has an arraignment hearing Dec. 17 in Buffalo County Circuit Court; she was arrested Nov. 14 in Fountain City after she was stopped by a police officer for speeding, according to court records.
Fountain City Police Chief Jason Mork said a subsequent search of Dahlby’s vehicle by a sheriff’s K-9 dog turned up 42 grams of methamphetamine, along with assorted quantities of LSD, prescription drugs, cocaine, hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana, according to court records. Officers also discovered $1,400 in cash in the vehicle.
It was the biggest traffic stop-related seizure of meth in county history, according to Mork.
The Buffalo County Attorney’s Office filed four felony charges against Dahlby, accusing her of possession with intent to deliver meth, cocaine, LSD and psilocybin mushrooms.
Dahlby has been convicted of a number of minor charges in multiple western Wisconsin counties, including marijuana possession, bail jumping, and obstructing law enforcement officers.
