A West Allis couple is facing charges after the man and woman allegedly parked in a handicapped parking space at a Greenfield grocery store so they could snort heroin.
Daniel Anthony Miller, 39, and Alysa Marie Rone, 22, were charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with one count of possession of narcotic drugs. If convicted, they each face up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Greenfield police were called to after an employee spotted the couple park their car in a handicap parking space and snort heroin inside. When an officer arrived, he spotted the two standing outside the car and ordered them to return and sit inside.
The officer was talking to the employee who called police when he noticed Miller hand a baggie of heroin to Rone, who then looked up at the officer and dropped it on her seat. The officer then searched the vehicle and found a vial on the backseat with two more baggies of heroin.
Rone told officers she has a $30 to $40 per day heroin habit and had snorted some earlier in the day. Miller also admitted to doing the drug with Rone often, saying he tried to dispose of it when he saw the police officer in the parking lot.
Both are currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on $500 signature bonds.
