Two people face felony drug charges after Tomah police tracked down a 30-year-old Friendship woman with an outstanding arrest warrant.

Police observed a 2004 Buick LeSabre registered to Jennifer Ann Decorah parked in the Kwik Trip North parking lot shortly before 1:30 a.m. Aug. 8. Police approached the vehicle while Decorah was inside, and she complied with an order to exit. Police informed Decorah about the warrant and placed her under arrest.

Police asked the passenger in the vehicle to identify himself. After he allegedly gave police a false name, Decorah reportedly identified him as Treyton Lee Webb, 22, Wisconsin Rapids, and was also placed under arrest.

A K9 unit conducted an exterior sniff of the vehicle. During the search, a clear plastic bin was found allegedly containing a plastic baggie with a white crystal substance inside, a knife, two syringes and three glass pipes with residue. Another container allegedly had a scale and several baggies of various size.

Decorah denied using methamphetamine and said she didn’t know anything about the contents inside the bin. Webb initially talked with police but later requested a lawyer.

Both Decorah and Webb were referred for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Webb was also referred for obstructing an officer.
