MERRILL (WAOW) – Three teenage girls stopped following a driving complaint had 37 grams of cocaine worth about $4,000 in their pickup truck, the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department said.

The incident occurred Friday about 4 p.m. near Tomahawk, the agency said.

An 18-year-old girl from Argonne was arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine with intent to distribute it, and two 15-year-olds from Port Edwards and Black River Falls were taken to juvenile detention facilities, Communications Officer Mike Caylor said.

The oldest girl, Dayvina Johnson, was charged Monday with three felonies - possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child - in Lincoln County Circuit Court, according to online court records. She was jailed on $100,000 cash bond and a preliminary hearing was set for Friday.

One of the 15-year-old girls was driving the 2013 Ford pickup truck and was cited for driving without a valid driver's license, Caylor said.


Police stopped the girls after a cell phone caller complained that a pickup truck traveling north on U.S. Highway 51 was speeding and nearly ran a vehicle off the road, Caylor said.

An officer stopped the vehicle, smelled the odor of marijuana and summoned a drug-sniffing dog from Tomahawk, Caylor said.

An officer noticed that a 15-year-old girl who was a passenger had a “large bulge” in the front of her pants, Caylor said. She removed it and identified it as cocaine, he said.
