A 29-year-old Prairie du Chien man has been charged in Crawford County Circuit Court with one count of possession of methamphetamine.
Joshua R. Barrette faces up to 3.5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
According to the criminal complaint, a vehicle was stopped in the city of Prairie du Chien by a police officer because it was traveling without its headlights on at night.
The officer was informed by dispatch that Barrette, who was a passenger in the vehicle, had a warrant for his arrest.
A search of the vehicle revealed four plastic baggies containing a white crystalline substance and three green pills.
Barrette admitted to officers that the baggies contained meth, the complaint said. A chemical field test also revealed the presence of meth, according to the complaint.
