New Lisbon couple charged for drugs, allegedly found passed out in car

According to the criminal complaint:

At about 1:51 p.m. April 7, Deputy Bradley Bires of the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle without a front license plate. The driver was identified as Lisa Jameson, and the two male passengers were identified as Richard Jones and Jeffery Hatfield.

During the stop, Deputy Brian Bader and his K9 partner Timo arrived on scene and Timo performed a free air sniff around the vehicle, alerting to the presence of illegal substances inside the vehicle. A search of the vehicle located a white powdery substance in a clear bag in the rear of the vehicle, a crystal like substance in a red container in Jameson’s purse, two soft drink cups with plastic bags floating in them, $2,429 in cash on Jones’ person, and a backpack containing $2,128 in cash.

A test of the white powdery substance returned a positive result for cocaine and weighed about 59 grams. The crystal substance tested positive for methamphetamine. The substance immersed in the soft drinks tested positive from fentanyl, and weighed 1,308 grams.

Each of the individuals in the car were asked about the drugs and all three denied the drugs belonged to them. Hatfield, Jones and Jameson were placed under arrest and transported to the Juneau County Jail.

At about 3:22 p.m. Detective Jan Greeno applied for and received a search warrant for a residence belonging to Jones in the town of Armenia. At about 4:10 p.m. the warrant was executed. Two individuals at the residence said Jones lived in the house with his girlfriend “Lisa.” Asked about numerous firearms in the bedroom and porch area of the home they stated Jones often had friends bring him firearms.

A search of Jones’ room located numerous guns. One of the guns was confirmed as stolen out of Baraboo. About $41,640 in cash was located next to Jones’ bed. Several items consistent with drug trafficking were located in the bedroom, including scales, gem baggies, plastic baggies, rubber bands and guns, and multiple bags had white residue on the inside.

A search of a shed revealed a large amount of a white powdery substance in a magnetic hide box under a shelf. The powder tested positive for cocaine and weighed about 53.5 grams. Law enforcement found 458 of two types of morphine pills, a 15 mg and a 60 mg version, near the cocaine.

During a search of Hatfield’s residence, police found a handgun in a locked safe and a magazine with seven 9mm rounds, a digital scale and gem bags.

Jones is scheduled for a jury trial beginning Aug. 24 at the Juneau County Justice Center. Jameson is scheduled for an arraignment June 24 at the Juneau County Justice Center. Hatfield is scheduled for a plea hearing Aug. 3 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
