Issue Date: September 26, 2019
Jason L. Mulikin, 42, of Kingsford, Mich. was arrested Monday, Sept. 9 in Oconto County after a state trooper stopped his northbound car on Hwy. 141 in Abrams and found nearly 3.5 ounces of methamphetamine in the vehicle.
He was subsequently charged with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of an illegally obtained prescription.
Mulikin's bond was set at $50,000 cash at his initial appearance on Tuesday, Sept. 10. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 30 before Judge Jay Conley.
The trooper stopped the car at about 3:50 a.m., after seeing it weave over the center line and over the fog line, according to the criminal complaint.
According to the complaint, Mulikin told the trooper he was texting and had been on the road several hours on his way to Iron Mountain. He was detained after it was found there was a warrant for his arrest issued by Dickinson County in Michigan.
After a police dog sniffed the car and provided a positive alert, two bags of a white crystal substance, a bag of pills, and a small bag with a tan substance were found in a backpack.
The white substance, which tested positive for methamphetamine, weighted 97 grams, officials say. The tan substance, about a quarter gram, tested positive for fentanyl. Thirty-four of the pills were gabapentin, a pain and seizure medication.
Cash bond of $50,000 was set at Mulikin's initial appearance on Tuesday, Sept. 10. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 30 before Judge Jay Conley.
