Man ID'd in Milton pot arrest
Tyler F. Chase, 18, Bingham Road, Milton, was arrested Nov. 15 on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug vehicle, according to a news release issued Thursday by Milton police.
The arrest came after multiple police agencies conducted a sweep of Milton schools with drug-sniffing dogs.
Police reported finding a "significant" amount of marijuana along with cash and drug packaging material in a student vehicle, which led to the arrest of Chase.
Police had refused to release the identity of Chase until Thursday.
The Gazette last month filed a request under the Wisconsin Open Records Law asking for the names of those arrested and details of charges in the drug sweep.
The department last week released the names of a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl arrested for lesser marijuana possession charges during the sweep.
The department had declined to release the identity of Chase, citing overarching state statutes.
