Arrest made after traffic stop
A Weyauwega woman with pending heroin charges in Outagamie County was charged in Waupaca County with misdemeanor drug offenses and felony bail jumping.
Tiffany M. Linberg, 24, was charged in Waupaca County with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony and misdemeanor bail jumping.
On Wednesday, Sept. 16, Linberg appeared in Outagamie Circuit Court on felony charges of drug trafficking and delivery of heroin. She was released from custody on a $5,000 signature bond.
At 11 p.m. that same day, Cpl. Adam Rogge, with the Weyauwega Police Department, made a traffic stop when he noticed a vehicle with expired license plates.
The driver, identified as Linberg, had bloodshot eyes, according to the criminal complaint.
When Rogge ran a records check on Linberg, he found that she had two heroin cases filed against her in Outagamie County. He called the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office and requested the canine unit.
Deputy Nick Traeger arrived with his canine and although the dog alerted to the presence of drugs, nothing was found in the car.
Rogge saw what appeared to be fresh saliva on the driver’s side door. He looked inside Linberg’s mouth and saw a brown residue covering her tongue. Rogge swabbed her mouth, but was unable to determine what the residue was.
Rogge then found a metal socket in Linberg’s bra. A burnt substance in the socket tested positive for marijuana.
