A 27 year old Winona man was jailed Thursday evening after police stopped his vehicle and discovered a large amount of illegal prescription drugs and cocaine in his vehicle.
Police Sargent Chris Nelson said an officer stopped a vehicle driven by Justin Dean Schultz about 11:40 p.m. after discovering the it had license plates that were listed to another vehicle. During a search of the vehicle police turned up 43 dosage units or pills of controlled prescription drugs and items that contained a white powdery substance that field tested positive for cocaine.
The cocaine was over three grams and because the stop was made within a block of Sinclair Park, the charges can be enhanced. Schultz was cited with preliminary felony counts of third and fifth degree possession of controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia, plus two other minor charges.
The case is being reviewed by the county attorney's office for determination of possible formal charges against Schultz.
