WORTHINGTON - A Wisconsin man arrested Thursday in Nobles County faces a fifth-degree possession charge.

 

According to the criminal complaint, Erik Rentmeester, 52, of Green Bay, Wis. was stopped Sept. 21 on Interstate 90. The officer asked Rentmeester and his passenger to exit the vehicle after seeing a green, leafy substance and smelling what he believed to be marijuana.

 

Rentmeester informed the officer he had a handgun in the trunk.

The complaint continues that during a vehicle search, three variations of THC gummies - each with a net weight of approximately 45 grams - was located. A black garbage bag with 14 containers of marijuana, each with a printed weight of 28 grams, was also located.

 

In a post-arrest interview, Rentmeester said he purchased the marijuana in Denver, Colo., for back and neck pain. He added that he travels to Denver about every six months to resupply for personal use.

 

Rentmeester’s initial appearance is scheduled for Oct. 3 in Nobles County District Court.
