Running out of gas can be an ordeal, and having to walk to a service station late at night could prove scary.

Two individuals now stand accused of drug crimes after a late-night encounter led to the open air search of a vehicle in Wisconsin.

In his song Cars Are Cars, Paul Simon wrote of someone who "once had a car that was more like a home."

While performing an investigation into the possible presence of drug activity, authorities may deploy informants in an attempt to make a controlled purchase. Once an informant claims to have purchased drugs from a person, police may use this information to attempt to obtain a warrant to perform a search of his or her residence and/or vehicle. Two individuals have been accused of drug crimes after an alleged purchase led to the search of a vehicle during a recent traffic stop in Wisconsin.
