LINCOLN COUNTY - One of three teens police say they found in a car with 37 grams of cocaine now faces criminal charges.

The girls were stopped because of a driving complaint.

18 year old Dayvina Johnson of Argonne is being held in the Lincoln County Jail.

Charges include possession of cocaine and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Johnson will be back in court Friday.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says the girls were stopped Friday afternoon on US Hwy 51 near US Hwy 8 outside of Tomahawk.

Two 15 year old girls were in the car.

One was from Port Edwards.

The other, who was driving the car, was from Black River Falls.

Both were sent to a secure juvenile detention facility.

The three girls were stopped after a complaint of speeding was called in.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's department says a Deputy was speaking with the driver when he detected a smell of marijuana and requested the Tomahawk Police Department K9 unit.

The report says, when asked to leave the car a deputy noticed a large bulge in the front of the pants of a 15 year old passenger and asked what it was.

According to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, she replied it was cocaine and proceeded to remove a large baggie containing a white powdery substance.
