Court Proceedings

Brown County District Court

• Charges including felony fifth-degree drugs-not small amount marijuana, misdemeanor drug possession over 1.4 grams marijuana in motor vehicle and petty misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia were filed Friday against Jacob H. Haug, 38, Winthrop. Bail without conditions was set at $10,000 Friday. A court appearance was set for 8:30 a.m. Sept. 28.

According to court documents, New Ulm Police were told of a black pickup parked in front on the 100 block of North State Street at 10:34 a.m. Sept. 15 that had been parked there for some time and that people appeared to be arguing throughout the morning.

Police noticed Haug and a woman, Nykol Haug, appeared to be living out of the vehicle and that they had seeming uncontrollable movements with their arms, hands and legs. They appeared to have body twitches at times and both of their eyes appeared to be very dilated, indicating to officers that they were under the influence of a controlled substance.

Haug told Rasche he used methamphetamines within the last 20 minutes with the woman while in the truck. Rasche searched Haug and a bag with pipe cleaners, a small spoon, brush, two one-hitter pipes, a marijuana grinder, and baggie with what appeared to be methamphetamine.

Haug admitted the contraband was all his. The suspected marijuana tested positive for marijuana and weighed 14.85 grams. The suspected meth tested positive and weighed .21 grams. The total amount of marijuana recovered was 16.24 grams. The total amount of meth recovered was .39 grams. Haug had a prior conviction.
