On September 30, 2017, a drug house was located in Spooner ,WI after the Spooner Police Department, the Washburn County Special Response Team (SRT) and the State Patrol executed two search warrants simultaneously at a duplex located in the City of Spooner, WI at 119 N Summit St. and 301 Vine St.
Felony charges have been filed in Washburn County Circuit Court against four individuals who were located at the duplex during the execution of the two search warrants. Those people were identified as Sheriea Bryan, Jonathan Bryan, Kristine Powers, and Kalob Stewart.
The search warrants were obtained by officers after a compilation of much information collected over a time period from October of 2016 until the date of the search warrants. According to a criminal complaint filed against Sheriea Bryan, officers of the Spooner Police Department had personally observed individuals known to be involved with methamphetamine coming and going from the duplex.
Just days before the search warrants were executed, officers conducted searches of trash cans associated with the duplex, and located used gem bags, items of mail addressed to the individuals who were found at the duplex during the search warrants, and used hypodermic needles with an unknown brown residue on them which was consistent with controlled substances. The criminal complaint filed against Sheriea Bryan states that Spooner Police Department had reason to believe that Sheriea, Jonathan, Kalob, and Kristine were all either residing at or frequenting the duplex.
Information received by the Spooner Police Department from other law enforcement agencies as well as confidential informants indicated that Jonathan Bryan was actively involved in selling methamphetamine.
During the search warrant, the criminal complaint filed against Sheriea Bryan goes on to describe that officers who were guarding the perimeter of the property saw Jonathan Bryan attempting to escape from a second story window. Officers located over a dozen items of drug paraphernalia containing drug residue inside the duplex including glass smoking pipes, gem bags, straw segments, and a scale.
