MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - Not guilty pleas were entered Thursday for a Merrill woman who was stopped for a traffic violation, and was reportedly caught with a large amount of drugs.
Police said 23-year-old Cassiopia Conlin tried to lie about her identity when she was stopped November 26th – but the arresting officer knew her as being wanted.
She’s charged in Lincoln County with six felony counts and three misdemeanors, and two men in her vehicle face a total 19 additional charges.
Conlin asked for a new judge, so it’s not known when she’ll be back in court.
Prosecutors said she was caught with 84 grams of methamphetamines, three grams of heroin, and a gram of LSD. Her felony charges accuse her of possessing all those drugs with the intent to sell them.
Conlin is also charged with possession marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
49-year-old Danny Hanson of Wausau was granted a public defender in his case. The other suspect, 38-year-old Jimmie Joannon of Merrill, is due back in court December 17th for a preliminary hearing.
