Draheim suspected of selling drugs out of north-side house
A La Crosse woman whose adult daughter may have died of a drug overdose is pleading “not guilty” to three drug-related charges.
Fifty-year-old Roberta Draheim is charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.
She entered the pre-trial pleas on Friday, after court testimony from a La Crosse police investigator.
Police found 12 grams of meth in Draheim’s cluttered house last month, after she called 911 to report that her daughter Britney Masewicz was dead, perhaps from taking heroin.
The search also uncovered safes, scales, and paraphernalia suggesting that drugs were being sold in the house on Kane Street.
An autopsy was conducted on the 25-year-old Masewicz, but results of toxicology tests have not been announced yet.
