Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says a 15-year-old girl was driving when deputy responded to the report of a reckless driver last Friday outside of Tomahawk.

The sheriff's department says three occupants-- the 15-year-old driver, and a 15 and 18-year-old passenger gave fake names and dates of birth.

According to the incident report the deputy smelled marijuana and requested the drug dog respond.

Investigators says the 15-year-old passenger had nearly $4,000 worth of cocaine in her pants.

Dayvina Johnson, 18, of Argonne, was booked into the Lincoln County Jail on charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, distribution of drugs to a person under the age of 18, obstructing an officer, using an underage person to aid in committing a crime, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A second passenger a 15-year-old from Port Edwards was sent to a secure juvenile detention facility with charges of obstructing an officer and party to the crime of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver.

The 15-year-old driver from Black River Falls was also sent to the secure juvenile detention facility she faces charges of obstructing and she was cited for driving without a valid driver’s license.

Johnson remains behind bars on a $100,000 cash. She'll return to court on Feb. 21 to learn if the case will head to trial.

The 15-year-old girls are not being charged as adult and their names will not be released to the public.
