Three people were arrested in Ferryville last Saturday, May 28th after the Crawford County Sheriff’s office received a complaint that the three appeared to be under the influence of drugs and acting strangely in a local business. The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit responded to the area and located the suspects driving on Main Street in Ferryville. The deputy noticed that the vehicle displayed two different license plates and had several equipment violations and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was identified 30 year old as Jacob Bullis of Winona, Minnesota., and his passengers as 36 year old Chartchai Khaokaew of La Crosse, and 19 year old Mollie Peck of La Crosse.
