Nashville teen charged with possessing meth

BEAN BLOSSOM — An 18-year-old Nashville man has been charged with possessing methamphetamine after police say they stopped him March 15 and discovered more than 20 syringes in his vehicle.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Austin Schonfeld stopped to talk with Adrian P. Bennitt while he was parked with another vehicle at the Dollar General in Bean Blossom, according to a probable cause affidavit by Deputy Andrew Eggebrecht.

Bennitt gave Eggebrecht consent to search him, the report said. The report didn’t say why Eggebrecht was called to the scene or why he asked Bennitt if he could search him.

Eggebrecht reported that Bennitt told him he had a “tooter,” or a tool used to snort drugs, in his truck. Bennitt handed Eggebrecht the tooter and Eggebrecht reported it had an “off-white powdery substance” inside.

Upon searching the vehicle, Eggebrecht reported finding 25 syringes and other drug-related items.

Bennitt was charged March 15 with possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony; unlawful possession of a syringe, a Level 6 felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
