MENOMONEE FALLS — A Menomonee Falls man and his girlfriend were arrested after a months-long drug trafficking investigation.
The investigation into the couple began in November after the Menomonee Falls Police Department received information about a drug deal involving drug trafficking suspects Kaitlin Geiger and Austin Schroeder.
Police spoke with a confidential informant who said they had seen several pounds of marijuana, THC edibles and a pipe used for meth at Geiger and Schroeder's residence. The informant later told police that they were able to purchase drugs from them.
On Jan. 10, the Waukesha County Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Group executed a search warrant at Schroeder and Geiger's residence. Detectives found several substances and drug paraphernalia belonging to both Geiger and Schroeder.
In an interview with detectives, Geiger said that Schroeder created drugs with chemicals using a pot on a stove. She also said that friends of hers would come to purchase drugs from her and Schroeder.
In an interview with detectives, Schroeder indicated that there were large amounts of unknown power and vegetable material in the apartment and that he legally owned and mixed the substances for a variety of reasons. He also told detectives that his mother passed away in November. Schroeder said he mixed his mother's ashes in a variety of substances, some of which he ingested.
When asked by officials about a marijuana-like vegetable material, Schroeder said he thought it was a CBD flower, which he said he thought it was legal. He also admitted to traveling to Illinois and Michigan and purchasing THC infused gummies and marijuana.
Geiger and Schroeder face several charges, including possession and drug trafficking.
