Rodney Burrell, 47-year-old male of Madison Wisconsin
CHARGES: Possession With Intent To Deliver THC (Marijuana)




On 3/31/2012, at approximately 11:30pm, Madison Police Officers were on their regular assignments in the Allied Drive area when they noticed a suspicious vehicle (2010 Dodge Charger) in the neighborhood. A Department Of Transportation check of the license plates showed no record whatsoever in the states of Illinois, Indiana or Wisconsin. As the driver (later identified as Rodney Burrell) exited the vehicle, officers immediately contacted him in the 2300 block of Allied Drive.

A very lethargic Burrell was slow to answer questions posed by officers regarding the possession of weapons and drugs, and after drug paraphernalia was located in Burrell’s pocket, a variety of other finds soon followed. More than 30 grams of Marijuana in multiple baggies were later found (near the located paraphernalia), and K-9 Slim arrived on scene and sniffed out close to 400 grams of marijuana in the Dodge Charger that Burrell had been operating just before he was contacted by police. The sagacious observations of the officers proved to move this drug investigation in a direction which resulted in a significant find of illegal narcotics, and Burrell being confined on a substantial criminal charge.
