A 27-year-old Prairie du Chien woman and a 36-year-old Prairie du Chien man have each been charged in Crawford County Circuit Court with one count of possession of narcotic drugs and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia as a party to a crime.
Tiffany J. McKittrick and Shawn R. Otterson, who were both staying in the same motel room on South Marquette Road, each face up to a $10,500 fine and three years and seven months imprisonment if convicted of both counts.
According to the criminal complaint, Prairie du Chien police officers responded to a report of a disturbance at the motel. When questioned as part of the investigation, Otterson admitted that he and McKittrick use morphine routinely, the complaint said.
Items of drug paraphernalia, including a syringe were seized following a search. A piece of cotton tested positive for opiates/morphine, according to the complaint.
