CRANDON - A traffic stop in Forest County led to a drug bust on Wednesday afternoon.

Police arrested Dianna Cooper, 26, of Milwaukee and Alicia Thunder, 29, of Crandon.

According to the Forest County Sheriff's Department, officers pulled a car over driven by Cooper for a "motor vehicle violation" in the town of Nashville around 12:10 p.m.

Officers smelled marijuana coming from the car. Police searched the car and found crack cocaine, methamphetamine, Oxycodone pills, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Officers booked Cooper and Thunder into the Forest County Jail and referred charges of felony drug possession, resisting and obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct, and felony bail jumping to the Forest County District Attorney.

Cooper and Thunder have not yet been charged in the case, but Thunder has an open felony THC possession case in Forest County Court, according to online court records. She was free on a $1,000 cash bond at the time of this arrest.

The Forest County Drug Task Force handled the investigation.
