Sturgeon Bay Man Arrested For OWI, Heroin Possession

 

A Sturgeon Bay man is facing likely charges of heroin possession, hit and run, and OWI after police say he caused two separate accidents on Maple Street.

According to Sturgeon Bay police, the 22-year-old struck a motorcycle at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Maple Street around 6 p.m. Friday, kept going, then ran into another vehicle at Lansing Avenue.

With the help of a canine handler from the Wisconsin State Patrol who was in the area for 'Click It or Ticket,' authorities say they found a small amount of drugs in the man's vehicle, then found a bag of heroin and syringes they say the man hid in nearby bushes.

In addition to the criminal charges, police say the man was cited for numerous traffic offenses including failure to yield right of way and operating with a suspended license.
