Travis J. Corrado, 33-year-old male of Stoughton, WI
CHARGES: Possession Of Heroin & Probation Violation


A Madison Police Officer was working on 8/16/2013, and at approximately 3:20pm, noticed a male run from businesses in the 4200 block of East Washington Avenue.  While that, in and of itself, was not a terribly strange thing, the details that soon followed were.  The male subject entered a vehicle, and sat inside for an exorbitant amount of time.  The officer, knowing that drug sellers and users display this kind of behavior, decided to approach the vehicle to see what was transpiring. 

The officer immediately noticed a female, later identified as Carrie Bjordahl, with a tourniquet on her arm, and syringes inside the vehicle.  When both Bjordahl, and Travis Corrado noticed the officer, there was a scramble to move the evidence of drug usage.  Officers continued to conduct their investigation, and after recovering other drug related items of value, both Corrado and Bjordahl were taken into custody on charges listed.
