A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 15 for an Elkhorn woman charged with selling cocaine and running from police.

Kristen L. Neumueller, 30, was charged July 31 in Walworth County Circuit Court with manufacturing or delivering heroin as a party to a crime and second and subsequent offense; obstructing an officer; and resisting an officer, all as a repeater.

According to the criminal complaint, Neumueller sold .58 grams of cocaine to a confidential informant during a controlled buy at the Dollar Tree in Elkhorn on July 11. The informant arranged another purchase July 25 with Neumueller, who arrived at the Dollar Tree on foot, according to the complaint.

When an officer approached Neumueller, she identified herself as “Amber,” and began to walk away despite the officer telling her she must stay until his investigation was complete, according to the complaint. When the officer ordered Neumueller to stop, she took off running.

The officer caught up to her, took her to the ground and tried to take her into custody. Neumueller physically resisted, tried to move her hands in front of her body to avoid being handcuffed and continued to say her name was “Amber,” according to the complaint. Neumueller later revealed her true identity.

She was convicted in 2013 of possession of narcotic drugs and felony bail jumping.
