On January 4, Drew Douglas Wiskow-Davis, 25, of St. Charles, appeared before District Court Judge Matthew J. Opat. Wiskow-Davis is charged with seven felonies; Drugs – Store Meth Paraphernalia in the Presence of Child or Vulnerable Adult, Drugs – Store Chemical Substances in the Presence of Child or Vulnerable Adult, Possession of a Controlled Substance, two counts of Financial Transaction Card Fraud – Sell Two or More, Receiving Stolen Property, and Felon Convicted of a Crime – Firearm Violation. The first three (drug) offenses, the second Financial Fraud offense, and the Receiving Stolen Property offense all carry maximum criminal penalties of five years in prison, $10,000 fines, or both. The second financial fraud offense carries a maximum criminal penalty of three years in prison and/or a $5,000. The Felon Firearm Violation offense carries a maximum criminal penalty of 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine. On or about October 22, Sheriff’s Investigator’s executed a search warrant at a Preston apartment, the primary residence of Wiskow-Davis and his girlfriend. Allegedly, no one answered when law enforcement announced their presence, yet when opened, Wiskow-Davis and his girlfriend were in the apartment. During a search of the apartment and a car outside, many suspicious or criminal items were allegedly found. In the bedroom, a checkbook (reported stolen) and a glass pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine were allegedly discovered. In the dining area, burnt foil (possibly used to ingest narcotics) and a back-pack containing drug paraphernalia (including hypodermic needles and lighters) were allegedly found. The backpack also contained other items suspected stolen. In a pair of Wiskow-Davis’ jeans was a wallet, which contained many other miscellaneous cards (debit, credit, club, permit to carry, and military ID) not belonging to the defendant and thus suspected stolen, plus a cigarette pack wrapper with a white crystalline substance (suspected methamphetamine). Both the backpack and jeans were allegedly in easy access of a child who also routinely inhabits the apartment. More suspected stolen items (checks, more miscellaneous cards, key fobs, prescription bottles, and ammunition cartridges) were also allegedly found in the apartment. In the girlfriend’s vehicle were allegedly more ammunition cartridges from multiple sized firearms. Officers later met with two victims who identified some of the items from in the apartment as theirs, and thus stolen. The girlfriend was charged with four of the same felonies, but won’t appear in court until February. Wiskow-Davis has an extensive criminal history, including receiving stolen property and multiple drug convictions.
