Amtrak passenger to stand trial on drug charges


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- The trial is set for a Boscobel man arrested on drug charges after police say they caught him carrying more than seven pounds of marijuana.

At a hearing Friday morning a judge ordered a trial for 25-year-old Reuben Dudenbostel. Police arrested Dudenbostel as he got off an Amtrak train in La Crosse earlier this month. Police were waiting for him, after Amtrak police in Portland, Oregon reported Dudenbostel acted suspiciously when he boarded the train there.

"They stated that when an Amtrak agent asked for his address he provided a couple different phone numbers and was visibly shaking at the counter," said Detective Sgt. Dan Kloss. "They were concerned, the agent stated he was behind Mr. Dudenbostel in line and reported that this was an odd behavior for someone going to ride the train."

Dudenbostel remains in jail on a $10,000 cash bond. He stood mute when asked to enter a plea, so the judge entered a plea of not guilty for him.
