Shoe, Socks Used to Conceal Syringe and Drugs, Police Say
Greenfield police officer begins to search the man, who takes off his shoe without direction and places a syringe under his foot.
A 26-year-old Waukesha man is facing charges after he was arrested for carrying heroin and Oxycodone in his socks during a traffic stop in Greenfield.
Daniel J. Campbell was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with one count of possession of a controlled substance. If convicted, he faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, on May 26, 2011, Campbell was a passenger in a car pulled over by a Greenfield police officer in the 4500 block of South 108th Street for a seat belt violation. The officer noticed Campbell reach down as he approached the car.
Once outside the car, the officer told Campbell he could leave his shoes and socks on, but Campbell took off his left shoe anyway, pulled out a syringe and placed it under his foot, the complaint said. The officer then asked him to take off his socks and two bindles of white powder fell out, according to the complaint.
Campbell told police the powder was heroin and Oxycodone, the compaint said. He will make his initial appearance in court Thursday.
