La Crosse Couple Says They Sold Drugs To Pay Their Bills

A La Crosse couple says their business paid the bills and supported a three-year-old child because they sold illegal drugs.

Twenty-one-year-old Tabitha Hanson allegedly told a police informant that she and Justin Weiker were struggling financially and had little food for Weiker's child, so they turned to drug sales.

Now, both are facing numerous charges, including conspiracy to deliver marijuana.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday in La Crosse County says Weiker told police he had sold drugs in the past, but had stopped and was holding the marijuana for a friend and co-worker.
