Couple charged with possession of narcotics at airport

MILWAUKEE -- Two people have been charged with possession of narcotic drugs after an incident at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport. The criminal complaint says a two-year-old child was in the car with the two at the time.

According to the criminal complaint, a caller reported a man unconscious in need of medical attention in a parked car at the airport. That man was Mark Berzill of Oak Creek. The complaint indicates Berzill had just returned from vacation and injected heroin that was brought to him by Ashley Kollath of Jefferson.

Sheriff's deputies searched the car Berzill and Kollath were in with the child. There were several needles in the center console and other heroin-use paraphernalia scattered throughout the car. Kollath told deputies she brought the heroin for Berzill but also intended to shoot up with it.

Berzill was taken to a hospital where he admitted injecting heroin with help from Kollath.

If convicted, Berzill and Kollath each face up to three-and-a-half years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
