Police arrested two La Crosse residents on drug-related charges Wednesday in Prairie du Chien.

Robert Klein, 37, and Tia McKnight, 28, both of La Crosse were arrested when a deputy from the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department discovered drugs in the car Klein was driving.

Klein was picking up someone from Crawford County Jail when authorities said Klein, whose driver’s license was suspended, exhibited signs of drug impairment and failed a field sobriety test.

Klein was determined to be under the influence of meth and subsequently arrested on charges of operating with a restricted controlled substance (first offense), possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia, possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
