A Necedah woman faces criminal charges after police say she was found in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Rebecca Kraft, 32, is charged with three counts of felony bail jumping, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. She faces up to six years imprisonment for each charge of felony bail jumping and up to five years imprisonment for each other charge.

According to the criminal complaint:

A Wisconsin State Trooper working from an unmarked cruiser near 19th Ave. in the Town of Germantown June 29 observed a black Jeep Cherokee parked at a Buckhorn State Park boat launch after hours with no park sticker displayed.

As the Trooper approached the parking area the driver of the Jeep began to drive away. The Trooper activated emergency lights to make a traffic stop but the Jeep began to continue moving forward. The Trooper observed the passenger of the vehicle attempt to “hide an object in her pants.”

After the Jeep came to a stop, the Trooper advised Kraft to exit the vehicle.

As Kraft exited the Jeep the Trooper observed “a dark object in her hand that she was trying to conceal.” When the Trooper reached Kraft she no longer had an object in her hands and believed she may have thrown it into the nearby woods.

Kraft admitted to being on probation and bond. She stated she was not “clean” and had been using “meth.” When asked if she was in possession of drug paraphernalia, Kraft placed a needle on the hood of the Trooper’s vehicle.

A search was conducted that yielded a bag containing multiple gem packs and aluminum caps with wire twist ties.

Deputies searched the woods and located a black zippered case. The case contained “a round metallic container, a razor blade, and a green meth scooper.” The metallic container held a plastic gem pack filled with “an off white crystalline substance.”

The substance was tested with a narcotics pouch test kit and received a positive presumptive field test for methamphetamine. It weighed in at 3.6 grams.

Beneath the Jeep, a plastic glasses case was located and found to contain a six inch green glass pipe.

Kraft was transported to the Juneau County Jail. At the Jail, Kraft requested to speak with a detective, claiming the drugs and paraphernalia were not hers and telling law enforcement to “fingerprint it.” She also admitted to using methamphetamine earlier.

After being informed she would be charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, Kraft began screaming at law enforcement and stating the evidence was not hers.

Kraft is currently in the Juneau County Jail. Her initial appearance is scheduled for July 11 at the Juneau County Jail.
