A 21-year-old Saukville man is facing charges after he and his Grafton drug dealer were caught in a park after hours.
Nathan C. McWhorter, of Saukville, and Marcus A. Hill, 17, of Grafton, were charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with four combined drug counts. If convicted, MCWhorter faces up to seven months in prison while Hill faces up to 3-½ years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Monday, a Grafton police officer on patrol near Veterans Park spotted the two men sitting in a car in the park. The officer went to inform them the park was closed and, while speaking to them, noticed the smell of intoxicants coming from their breath and a marijuana smell from inside the car.
The officer then searched the car and found a backpack that belonged to McWhorter with a bong, pipe, scale, rolling papers and baggie of high grade marijuana inside. Another backpack was in the car, which belonged to Hill and contained more marijuana and paraphernalia.
Hill told the officer he sells the drugs to friends in the Grafton area.
McWhorter is currently free on $150 bail and Hill is free on $1,000 bail.
