Two people arrested on outstanding warrant and drug related charges after vehicle search

DE SOTO, Wis. – Sheriff Roy Torgerson reports the arrest of Lacy Rae Storkson, 41, and Dexter S. Yarbough, 54, both of La Crosse, WI, on Thursday morning, August 24, at two separate locations.

According to a Sheriff’s report on Friday, August 24, at approximately 5:30 a.m. Yarbough came to the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office to report his identification card and an electronic tablet were missing after giving a female a ride from La Crosse to rural De Soto. At approximately 7:00 a.m. a deputy sheriff and K-9 Dax located a female along South Creek Road, where the towns of Genoa, Harmony, and Sterling all meet, in rural De Soto, Wis. The female was identified as Lacy Storkson, and was taken into custody on an outstanding apprehension request, similar to an arrest warrant, and booked into the Vernon County Detention Center.

At approximately 8:30 a.m. Dexter Yarbough was taken into custody at the Sheriff’s Office following a positive canine alert on a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu that Yarbough had been operating. Yarbough was booked into the Vernon County Detention Center for Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Yarbough appeared in Vernon County Circuit Court and was released on a $10,000.00 signature bond with several conditions including no contact with a specific address on Oliver Road, in rural De Soto. Formal charges will be sought through Vernon County District Attorney Angela Palmer-Fisher. Yarbough is due back on court on September 26th, at 8:30 AM.

Lacy Storkson will be held on the previous probation violation pending further instructions by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The Sheriff’s office says the initial theft complaint was unfounded.

Further testing on an unknown substance found in the vehicle was completed with a positive result for the presence of Fentanyl. The investigation continues by the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office.
