Traffic Stop by Spooner Police Lead to Meth Charges
SHELL LAKE -- A Siren, WI woman is facing criminal charges for possession of methamphetamine in Washburn County in addition to methamphetamine and child neglect charges in Burnett County.
Criminal charges were filed in Washburn County Circuit Court on January 8, 2018, charging Kari Ann Eberley with Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, and Class H Felony Bail Jumping.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Eberley in Washburn County Circuit Court, on December 19, 2017, the Spooner Police Department stopped a vehicle and located Eberley and another woman and a man inside the vehicle.
Spooner Police Department’s K9 Officer Bleu was brought in and as a result of his positive hits around the vehicle, a search was conducted. Although no drugs or illegal contraband were found inside the vehicle, officers found methamphetamine inside Eberley’s purse, according to the criminal complaint.
Eberley advised officers that her children were at her residence in Burnett County and that a neighbor was watching them. Officers also confirmed that Eberley was under the conditions of a bail bond through Burnett County. BurnettWire.com reported on December 29, 2017, that Eberley had been charged in Burnett County Circuit Court with 4 counts of Class A Misdemeanor Child Neglect, for leaving her children home alone and then getting arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine and Bail Bond Violation.
Eberley is also facing charges of Class I Felony Methamphetamine, Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct in a separate case in Burnett County Circuit Court. Details of that case are not known to DrydenWire.com at this time.
In a separate story, BurnettWire.com reported on January 11, 2018, Eberley’s residence in the Siren Trailer Park caught fire and was destroyed. Four children and one adult in the residence escaped.
A cash bond of $500 was posted for Eberley in Washburn County on January 12, 2018, according to online circuit court records. It is believed that she has been released from the custody of the Washburn County Jail.
The male passenger in the vehicle initially identified himself as Jeremy Bremer, however, officers later discovered that he was actually Nicholas Bremer and there was an active warrant for his arrest. Bremer was placed under arrest and online circuit court records show that a criminal case has also been filed against him in Washburn County Circuit Court charging him with Misdemeanor Resisting or Obstructing an Officer.
Bremer and Eberley are both scheduled to appear on their charges in Washburn County Circuit Court next week.
DrydenWire.com did not locate any record of new criminal charges being filed against the other woman located in the vehicle, so her name will not be included in this story.
