FOND DU LAC – Pot, psychedelic mushrooms and pills were discovered in a motor home reported as “abandoned” at a gas station in rural Fond du Lac County.
A 26-year-old Fond du Lac man is in custody, charged with numerous drug-related offenses, and the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group is investigating the extent of drug-related activities that have taken place at this location.
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s deputies were called to investigate the 40-foot-long motor home that was parked in the rear parking area at Eden Corner Express convenience store in the village of Eden.
Capt. Ryan Waldschmidt said it appeared the motor home had been there for a while, and was easily hidden among the semitrailers that use the back lot to park overnight.
The man, who was inside the motor home, told deputies he was the owner, was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office.
A search warrant of the vehicle by the MEG unit turned up significant drug activity, including marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, forms of manufactured THC and pills. Drug paraphernalia and cash were also seized.
A woman was also found inside the home.
