GRANT COUNTY - A Boscobel man faces 16 separate charges following an arrest in a Boscobel home at the end of December.

According to the criminal complaint issued by the Grant County Circuit Court, Chief of Police Jaden McCullick received a message on December 28 from Grant County Dispatch center requesting that he call a probation agent in regards to conducting a welfare check on an individual.
McCullick reported in the criminal complaint that immediately upon entering the apartment he viewed syringes as well as track marks on the inside left of Schneiders left arm. It was also noted in the criminal complaint that Schneider admitted to McCullick to have been “using narcotics the night prior.”
Boscobel Police Officer Travis Dregne reported in the criminal complaint that during his time in the residence, he did not see any weapons near him, but noted that he could see a plastic box on the bedside table that contained a glass pipe and a green, leafy substance that appeared to be marijuana. Additionally, according to the criminal complaint, Dregne reported observing the fresh marks on the bend of Schneiders arm along with a small pile of syringes on the floor with a small plastic baggie that contained a white crystalline substance he believed to be methamphetamine. Upon further investigation, Dregne located a digital scale and a chunk of gray, ash/concrete colored material. These materials were also in addition to a large, heavy spool of coated copper wire that weighed approximately 60 pounds with a Scot Industries label on the side, that was also reported in the criminal complaint to have been found in the home.
Upon searching of Schneiders vehicle, Dregne located an additional baggie of the ashy gray substance.
According to the criminal complaint, Dregne field tested the substances that were found, with the white crystalline substance coming back positive for meth, the ashy gray substance coming back positive for fentanyl and the leafy green plant matter coming back positive for THC.
McCullick reached out to Muscoda Chief of Police Bill Schramm regarding the copper wire that was found in the residence, and according to the criminal complaint, Schramm was able to confirm that the wire belonged to Scot Industries and was taken without their knowledge or consent and carried a value of $620.
