29 year old Kristie Pakebusch of Trinity had a squeaky clean record until she was caught with a bunch of dope.
From Clean Record to 3 Felonies in One Fell Swoop, ONALASKA, May 4, 2012 - At approximately 5 pm on May 3, 2012, Officer Michael Pleytez with the Onalaska Police Department was on patrol in the 1000 block of FM-356 North in Onalaska. Pleytez spotted a maroon Dodge Caravan speeding (doing 60 in a 50) and initiated a routine traffic stop. Pleytez observed that the driver of the vehicle, Kristie Pakebusch, 29, of Trinity was acting overly nervous. Pakebusch stated to Officer Pleytez that she was on her way to pick up her kids from the school bus stop. Pleytez was very suspicious due to Pakebusch's nervousness. Pleytez got consent to do a vehicle search and uncovered a baggy containing 48 hydrocodone pills (approximately 40 grams), crystal meth, and a crack pipe with cocaine residue. When asked about the contraband, Pakebusch stated that she was transporting the dope to her mother-in-law. Pakebusch was placed under arrest and charged with 3 counts of felony possession of a controlled substance. Pakebusch was transported to Polk County Jail and booked in. Her vehicle was recovered by George White & Sons Wrecker Service and is being held for further investigation in Onalaska.
