Two Trempealeau County police dogs sniffed out drugs and a gun, leading to five arrests last week over a two-day period. At a March 9th traffic stop in Arcadia, police dog Javy found cocaine, marijuana, and prescription drugs resulting in the arrest of Heidi Nelson of Eau Claire. Later the same day, Javy found a loaded firearm, heroin, and marijuana in a car stopped in Whitehall. Gage Lewallen of Augusta was arrested. Two days later police dog Luke alerted to the presence of meth in a car stopped in the Town of Gale. Thirty-eight-year-old Amanda Matheny of La Crosse was arrested. And, later the same day, Robert Boettiger of Bruce, Travis Trudeau of Conrath, and Dawn Malecki of Holcombe were all taken into custody when Luke found meth and drug paraphernalia in a vehicle.
