MERRILL, WI (WSAU) -  What started as a traffic stop turned into a major drug bust for Merrill police Monday night. Police Captain Corey Bennett says officer Matt Waid pulled a vehicle over at 11:10 p.m. when he noticed the license plates didn’t match the vehicle. That’s when the officer recognized the driver as someone they’ve been looking for.

23-year-old Cassiopia Conlin of Merrill tried to give officer Waid a false name, but he recognized her and took her into custody. Passengers 38-year-old Jimmie Joannon of Merrill and 49-year-old Danny Hanson of Wausau were also arrested after officer Waid and Wausau’s canine unit discovered an unusually large quantity of drugs on the suspects and in the car.  Bennett says, "They located methamphetamines, heroin, LSD, and marijuana, and there was at least an ounce of methamphetamine at that time.”

All three suspects made initial appearances this afternoon on the new charges in Lincoln County Court.
