A New Lisbon man faces drug charges after police say he maintained a drug trafficking place.

Wayne Gilson, 39, is charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place, possession with intent to deliver THC and possession of drug paraphernalia. He faces up to three and a half years imprisonment for each of the first two charges.

According to the criminal complaint:

After receiving information from New Lisbon Schools about a potential drug trafficking place in Bader’s Villa Estates East, police obtained a search warrant for the residence. It was executed March 17 at approximately 6:00 p.m.

New Lisbon and Mauston police officers, Juneau County deputies and a state trooper responded to the residence.

Gilson told the officers there was a pipe and some “dabs” a concentrated form of THC, on top of his dresser in the residence. He initially insisted that was the extent of the drugs in the home, but when pressed, said there was a “black box” on a shelf next to the desk.

Officers located a “glass pipe with THC residue, a black tin with rubber containers in it containing ‘dabs’ concentrated THC, a gray stone with a metal pick containing THC residue… blue notebook containing pricing for THC and possible prescription pills… three glass pipes for smoking dabs, three glass pipes with THC residue, rolling papers, a blue tin in color grinder with the odor of THC, green in color container containing dabs, two glass baby food jars containing THC, and a metal tin lid containing THC residue wit AC/DC on the lid, and a Ronson 2.75 ounce Butane Fuel canister.”

Next to the desk on a shelving unit, officers found “a black Weigh Max digital scale, brown box that THC was sold in, multi-colored rubber container containing dabs, Ronson 2.75 (ounce) Butane Fuel canister… plastic bags with Biohazard logo on them… orange (three inch) prescription pill bottle without label containing THC, black 4.5 (inch) Vape pen, green and blue 5.5 (inch), purple rubber pipe with dabs in it… plastic bag with Biohazard Logo on it containing a green in color pill identified by its markings E7 as Oxycodone 15mg and a pink color pill identified by its markings K 56 as Oxycodone 10mg… (and) $300 in assorted U.S. paper currency.”

Gilson said no one in the home had a prescription for oxycodone.

Gilson is not currently in the Juneau County Jail. His initial appearance in court is scheduled for April 11 at the Juneau County Justice Center.You can reach Jake Ekdahl on Twitter @JakeaEkdahl
