Brownies are among traditional party treats and – without a secret ingredient – only cause concern for a person’s waistline.
But for deputies responding to a report of loud noise on Bark Road in the Town of Lisbon, it was that ingredient that caused them concern.
Robert J. Meyer, 19, of Eagan, MN, is facing several drug charges after the deputies reported finding marijuana brownies at the home on Nov. 16, according to a criminal complaint.
Meyer is charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, he faces up to seven months in jail and $1,500 in fines.
According to the complaint:
The deputies responded to the W24700 block of Bark Road in the Town of Lisbon at 11:36 p.m. Nov. 16 where they found a large underage drinking party in progress. The deputies asked a detective to respond when they found evidence of a possible indoor marijuana grow.
The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department located 0.5 grams of marijuana, marijuana brownies and paraphernalia consistent with smoking and growing marijuana.
The detective made contact with Meyer, who lived at the Town of Lisbon residence at the time. He told the detective he was hosting the party and the marijuana was his. Meyer admitted to making the brownies to give to those attending the party.
Meyer also admitted he was going to start growing marijuana indoors, having a chamber, grow lights, potting soil and nutrients. He told the detective he planned to grow a single plant for his own use.
While the complaint states Meyer lived at the Town of Lisbon home at the time of the party, his address is now in Eagan, a suburb of the Twin Cities.
