MENOMONIE -- A traffic stop conducted Sunday by the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit led to the arrest of a rural Menomonie woman and seizure of drugs, a handgun and counterfeit money.

According to a news release from the Dunn County Sheriff's Office: 

Cassandra P. Davis-Suchla, 25, had her initial appearance Monday in Dunn County Court and is being held on a $15,000 cash bond.

During the traffic stop, authorities found more than 341 grams of methamphetamine, scale, packing material, oxycodone and suboxone as well as the gun and counterfeit money.
