ELKHORN

The Walworth County Drug Unit on Thursday executed a search warrant at an Elkhorn home where they found methamphetamine precursors, sheriff’s Capt. Robert Hall said.

Investigators were led to the upper unit of a home at 219½ N. Wisconsin St., as part of an investigation into people previously arrested and charged in suspected meth cases.

“We believe meth had been produced in that residence,” Hall said.

Nobody was at the home when police executed the warrant, said Hall, who heads up the drug unit. No arrests were made as of Thursday afternoon regarding what police reported finding at the Elkhorn home.

Hall said the sheriff’s office on Wednesday, however, arrested Krista Stoll Wobig, 32, whom sheriff’s Lt. Todd Neumann reported seeing Sept. 19 drive away from a spot where a bag of meth-making materials had been dumped in the town of Delavan, according to a criminal complaint.

Neumann later identified the two women he saw dump the bag and drive away as Stoll Wobig and Melissa E. Kuen, 36, according to the complaint.

Stoll Wobig and Kuen both are facing meth charges following a Jan. 9 explosion at The Cove of Lake Geneva hotel and a search warrant executed days before the explosion at a Lake Geneva home.

Kuen has been charged in the Sept. 19 incident with possession of drug paraphernalia to manufacture meth and three counts of felony bail jumping.

One of the bail jumping charges is for allegedly having contact with Stoll Wobig, which is against a condition of her bond.

The investigation from last week led police to the Elkhorn home Thursday, Hall said.

The investigation continues, he added.

Hall also stressed the “manpower intensive” nature of meth investigations because of their potential chemically hazardous dangers.
