On Sept. 14, Crawford County deputies were conducting foot patrol in the village of Gays Mills. While on patrol, deputies made contact with Gary Wickham, 31, Soldiers Grove, in his vehicle. Wickham was observed smoking from a “bubbler” device believed to be used to ingest marijuana. In searching Wickham’s vehicle, deputies found a bag containing marijuana, a glass smoking device with burnt marijuana residue and other paraphernalia, along with an open beer bottle.
Wickham was cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and was warned for false display of license plates, no insurance and open intoxicants.
