Attempted Candy Theft Leads to Heroin Possession Charge, Say Police

Samuel Lueck of Waukesha shot up the drug in the parking lot of a grocery store while his 4-year-old son was in the car, according to a criminal complaint.

An case of suspected shoplifting at a Milwaukee Pick 'n Save led to charges for possession of narcotic drugs for a 27-year-old Waukesha man, according to Miwaukee County court records.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Feb. 2, Samuel Leuck of Waukesha and Jordan Ebbott of Muskego, were detained by the employees of a Pick 'n Save on 57th and Capitol Drive after they were suspected of stealing candy from the store. 

Employees told police that the two had resisted and fought with them when confronted at the store exit. In addition, they told police, they had seen Ebbott remove a blue bag from his pocket, hand it to Leuck, who had then disposed of it in a trash can. 

Reports state that the bag contained two syringes, a lighter, a blue rubber band, two caps that were burnt on the bottom and a clear plastic baggie with suspected heroin in it.

Leuck, who was also charged with possession of narcotics, stated that he was with Ebbott earlier in the day when Ebbott purchased heroin while Leuck's 4-year-old son was present in the car. 

Leuck also told police that after purchasing the heroin, he and Ebbott parked at the Pick ‘n Save and used the heroin, again while his Leuck's son was in the car.

Ebbott told police that he purchased $50 worth of heroin for Leuck, but not for himself. 

Both men face a maximum penalty of $10,000 or 3 1/2 years in prison or both if convicted. Ebbott's sentence could also be increased by up to 4 years if he is found guilty of another charge of possession stemming from a case in November 2012.
