EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -

Authorities arrested two men in Eau Claire in the Kwik Trip parking lot, 2125 Brackett Avenue, on several drug charges on Tuesday.

Eau Claire police say they were notified by the Wisconsin Department of Justice-Division of Criminal Investigation and the City of Madison Police Department that Jumal Willie Jemison, 28, was possibly in the Eau Claire area.

Jemison was wanted for numerous open charges, including sexual assault with a weapon and stalking.  He had numerous warrants for his arrest from multiple Wisconsin counties and had been evading arrest for more than a year, according to Eau Claire police.

Authorities observed Jemison in a vehicle with Zan Morgan, 36, near Fairfax Street in the City of Eau Claire.

After searching Jemison, Morgan, and the vehicle, investigators found a “significant quantity of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, and large amounts of separated case, as well as a semi-automatic pistol with a loaded magazine,” according to Eau Claire police.

Jemison and Morgan had their initial appearance in Eau Claire County Court on Wednesday, June 3.
