Baraboo woman charged with running drug home

December 12, 2018

A Baraboo woman is facing charges that she used her home to traffic drugs after authorities seized narcotics and paraphernalia in a November raid.

One of the items authorities seized in the search of 23-year-old Cortney Lynn Clement’s Fifth Avenue home was a “drug ledger,” according to a criminal complaint that charges her with three felonies and one misdemeanor.

Authorities received information through Sauk County Crime Stoppers that Clement was selling marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy out of her home, according to the criminal complaint. They began collecting her garbage, allegedly finding evidence of illegal substance use and sales.

During the Nov. 16 execution of a search warrant, investigators reported finding baggies of marijuana and containers of pills, as well as items consistent with drug dealing, such as the ledger and a digital scale. They also found various drug paraphernalia.

Prosecutors have charged Clement with felony counts of maintaining a drug trafficking place, narcotics possession and marijuana possession. She faces an additional misdemeanor count of drug paraphernalia possession.

Each of the felony charges carries a maximum possible prison sentence of three years and six months.
