A Baldwin couple was arrested June 2 for multiple drug related charges while in Hudson. Matthew Strahm 24, and Breanna Danielson 22, received charges for possession of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, psilocybin, opiates and other narcotics.

After receiving multiple calls regarding an animal complaint, Officer Derek Fravert and Officer Shane Klimek of the Hudson Police Department arrived on scene outside of the Hudson Tap restaurant. The officers approached the vehicle to find two dogs inside the car. According to the complaint, Fravert then smelled an odor that he believed to be marijuana.

At that time, both officers made contact with Strahm who was coming out of the Hudson Tap restaurant. Fravert asked if Strahm was the owner of the vehicle to which he replied that his girlfriend, Danielson, was the owner. Fravert informed Strahm about the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and that he needed Danielson to contain her dogs, so they could search the vehicle. 

Upon asking if anything illegal was in the vehicle, Danielson and Strahm said, “there was nothing, but their friends had been smoking marijuana in the vehicle the night before” the complaint states. Danielson then said that her friend, “had left a backpack in the trunk that could possibly have marijuana inside.”

After Danielson and Strahm took control of the dogs in the car, the officers searched the vehicle to find a black Adidas backpack. Inside, Fravert, “located multiple gallon bags containing marijuana, multiple bags containing unknown pills, clear plastic dime bags with a white powdery substance.” The officers then put Danielson and Strahm in handcuffs and placed them in separate squad cars.

A thorough search of the vehicle and the backpack was then conducted by the officers that found more marijuana in the center cupholder and between the driver’s seat and door. The complaint lists the contents of the backpack as follows: 

“793.2 grams of marijuana, 212.5 grams of psilocyin (sic) mushrooms, 3 grams of LSD, 36.8 grams of cocaine, 6.5 grams of oxycodone, 190 capsules containing codeine, 96 capsules of molly/ecstasy, 17 THC vape pen cartridges, 1 marijuana grider (sic), multiple empty vacuum sealed bags containing marijuana shake, a list of drugs and the amounts they were being sold for, and a 3 subject note book that contained a ledger with 72 names and phone numbers/snapchat names and whether they were ‘for personal’ in it.”

Strahm and Danielson have each received seven felony charges of possession of illegal narcotics with intent to distribute. Cash bonds have been set at $2,500 dollars and their next hearing is scheduled for June 4 at 1 p.m.
