CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (WBAY) - A 47-year-old woman was arrested after bags of heroin fell out of her pocket while talking with officers, according to Clintonville Police.

On Oct. 18, at about 10:46 p.m., Clintonville police were called to a gas station to check on a woman that “appeared to be intoxicated.” Police say she had a child with her.

While officers were talking with the woman, she reached in her pocket and “multiple baggies with a powder substance fell on the ground,” according to police.

Investigators say they recovered 28 bags of suspected heroin weighing 32 grams.

The woman, a Minocqua resident, was arrested for possession with the intent to deliver heroin. She was taken to the Waupaca County Jail.
