Brett Lackovich, 24, of Caledonia, was charged with a felony count of possession of narcotic drugs and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, Lackovich faces up to three years seven months in prison and/or up to $10,500 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, the Caledonia Police Department stopped Lackovich on Four Mile Road and Highway 31. During the traffic stop, Lackovich took Suboxone and put it inside the door. He told the officer that he had a prescription for it, but didn’t have it with him.
During search of his car, officers also found hypodermic syringes, spoons with a burned residue, elastic and rubber bands, and aluminum foil in his car. Inside the aluminum foil, the officer found a substance that tested positive for heroin.
Lackovich is set to have a preliminary hearing at 8:30 a.m. April 16 in Racine County Felony Court.
