MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - Three people face a total of 28 criminal charges, after a routine traffic stop turned into a major drug bust in Merrill.

Police said they stopped 23-year-old Cassiopia Conlin of Merrill late Monday night, because the license plates did not match the vehicle they were on.

Officials said Conlin tried giving a false name, but the officer recognized her. And she and two passengers were arrested after a large amount of drugs were found by the officer and Wausau’s canine unit.

Conlin, 38-year-old Jimmie Joannon of Merrill, and 49-year-old Danny Hanson of Wausau appeared in Lincoln County Circuit Court Tuesday – and all are due back December 6th when a judge will decide whether to order trials.

Conlin faces 9 charges, Joannon 11, and Hanson 8. They include possessing meth-amphetamines, heroin, and LSD with the intent to sell them. Other charges include maintaining a drug trafficking house, marijuana possession, using paraphernalia to manufacture drugs, bail jumping, and not having the required state drug tax stamps.

Bond was set at $20,000 for Hanson, and $7,500 for the other two.
