A 21-year-old Muskego woman is facing charges after she was caught carrying pills in a backpack after she was in a car involved in an accident while driving through Wauwatosa, according to a complaint filed in Milwaukee County.
Carly L. Czajkowski was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday with one count of possession of a narcotic drug. If convicted, she faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 10:48 p.m. Sept. 26, a Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy was travelling southbound on Highway 45 just past West Wisconsin Avenue, when he spotted a truck going in reverse on the shoulder. He stopped to see what was going on and the driver alerted him to an accident straight ahead.
The deputy found a silver car with severe frontend damage that looked like it had driven into a building at a high rate of speed. The driver and Czajkowski were both outside of the vehicle with injuries, the report stated.
The deputy asked Czajkowski for identification, which she said was inside a backpack in the car. The deputy looked inside and reported that he found a pill bottle with two pills and a cooking device used to prep drugs for injection.
The complaint stated that Czajkowski told the deputy the backpack belonged to the driver. The pills were later identified as Oxycodone Hydrochloride and Quetiapine Fumarate, which is used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.
Czajkowski is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail while awaiting trial.
