THURSDAY 1/30/20 8:07 a.m.

FOX CROSSING, Wis. (WFRV) – A mother and son in Fox Crossing were arrested Monday following a drug bust, according to Fox Crossing Police.

The Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Drug Unit say they had previously investigated a residence in the 900 block of Strohmeyer Court following a controlled purchase of crack cocaine from 56-year-old Leslie Howard. Howard’s son, 20-year-old Tylor Johnson, was believed to be supplying the illegal substance. Johnson reportedly lived in the residence with Howard.

LWAM investigators say they maintained surveillance of Johnson went he left the residence in a vehicle earlier this week. Fox Crossing Police then stopped the vehicle in Outagamie County.

A Grand Chute Police K9 was requested to assist officers during the traffic stop. The K9 was alerted while searching the vehicle, according to authorities.

Police say that during the traffic stop, $3,533 U.S. currency was located in Johnson’s wallet. Johnson was then arrested.

Officials say a search warrant was then executed on the residence. Police detained five occupants, including Howard.

While searching the residence, investigators found crack cocaine, powder cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, high-end wristwatches, identifiers, and $2,000 U.S. currency.

Howard was ultimately arrested and taken to the Winnebago County Jail. The remaining occupants were released, according to police.

The LWAM Drug Unit continues to investigate the incident. Fox Crossing Police say they want the community to know that your safety is of the utmost importance and that they will continue to combat the sale and manufacture of controlled substances, along with all other unlawful activity that disrupts and threatens the peace, safety, order, aesthetics, and property values of the Village of Fox Crossing.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this story misidentified Leslie Howard as a man. An updated release from the Fox Crossing Police Department shows Howard is a woman.
