Lost out-of-towners ask police for directions, end up in jail

KAUKAUNA — After being flagged down Saturday by two men unfamiliar with the city, police discovered a cache of what they say are stolen goods and weapons.

Early Saturday morning Aug.12, 2017, two 20-year-old males waved down a Kaukauna police officer for directions, saying they were lost, according to a post on the police department’s Facebook page.

However, police say the location they were looking for did not make sense to officers and they were confused as to what city they were even in.

Other observations by officers on scene ultimately led to an investigation, a search of the vehicle, and finally, arrests.

The search yielded narcotics, drug paraphernalia, a loaded handgun under the front seat, and a sawed off shotgun on the backseat under a blanket. The following day police say they learned many items in the car were stolen from a resident in Fox Crossing.

The driver was booked into jail on a probation violation, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a short barrel shotgun. The passenger was booked on possession of a narcotic and drug paraphernalia.
