Sussex man allegedly dealt pot in neighborhood

Garbage man tips mom off about police search

An 18-year-old Sussex man has been charged with possession of THC and drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug-trafficking place after his neighbors told police they thought he was selling drugs in the subdivision, according to a criminal complaint filed Feb. 6 in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

The complaint states that Michael J. Verrier, W226 N5906 Avon Drive, was seen in his subdivision meeting with people who pull up in vehicles. Police also reported seeing people going inside Verrier's home for short periods of time and leaving.

Police arrested Verrier on Nov. 9, and he admitted he purchases a quarter pound of marijuana about every week, but he has someone else sell it, according to the complaint. The complaint states that police searched Verrier's home Nov. 9 and found paraphernalia, including a marijuana pipe with residue, hash and $630. However, the complaint says that before the police search a garbage man told Verrier's mother that police might be searching his home.

According to the complaint, Verrier's mother told her son to remove all drugs and drug paraphernalia because the police were probably going to search the home. Verrier told police if the garbage man had not told his mother, he probably would have had more narcotics at his home, the complaint reads.

If convicted of all charges, he faces more than three years in jail, driver's license suspension and more than $10,000 in fines. His initial appearance is Feb. 18.
