Seek help finding elderly couple's dog|
An elderly Antigo couple is seeking help in finding their just-adopted dog.
The nine-year-old Shiba Inu, named Sesame, bolted from the couple’s vehicle as soon as they opened the door in their driveway after collecting her from the New Life Adoption Center.
The couple contacted Lost Dogs of Wisconsin, but their ability to place flyers and use social media as recommended by the nonprofit volunteer organization is limited by age and circumstances.
“Let's hope word of mouth and a stroke of luck in Antigo will bring Sesame home,” Jamie Dutcher, a Lost Dog volunteer, said. “Together we can get Sesame to safety. It is getting colder and she is a smaller older dog. We are looking for volunteers to help place flyers and make sure sightings are reported so that we can safely catch this dog. It is important for people not to chase her as this may cause her to bolt out of fear.”
Sesame is a spayed female and weighs about 20 pounds. She was last seen near Seventh Avenue.
If seen, call Shirley, a volunteer with the New Life Adoption Center, at 920 475-3853.
Elcho man flees from deputy, caught in home
An Elcho man who allegedly refused to stop when signaled and then tried to escape capture by running into his home is being charged with obstructing an officer.
The incident occurred at about 2:15 a.m. today when a Langlade County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop the car because of a malfunctioning headlamp and because it was not properly registered.
According to reports, the motorist drove to his house, exited the vehicle and fled indoors. He was later found hiding inside a locked bedroom closet. He admitted to knowing the deputy was trying to stop him but he had been drinking and didn’t want to be arrested.
The man’s brother is also being charged for helping him hide.
An Antigo man is facing a drug charge as the result of a traffic stop initiated late Wednesday on the city’s far south side.
Officials said the 28-year-old had been drinking and tubing associated with the ingestion of illegal drugs, particularly bath salts, was found in his car. He remains jailed on a probation hold.
Antigo police arrested a 27-year-old woman Wednesday for violating a domestic restraining order. The incident came as the result of a dispute with a male i
Federal jury trial set Feb. 18 in Hunter drug case
A jury trial has been set Feb. 18 for 35-year-old John M. Hunter of Antigo on federal drug charges.
Hunter was indicted by a grand jury earlier this year on a single count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. He entered a plea of not guilty to the count during an arraignment hearing Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Green Bay.
Hunter had also faced charges in Langlade County Circuit Court but those counts were dismissed in light of the indictment.
According to James Santelle, attorney for the Eastern District of the Department of Justice in Wisconsin, Hunter is accused of conspiring with others to distribute and possess 500 grams of cocaine, which figures to a little over one pound and 50 kilograms of marijuana, which equals slightly over 109 pounds.
The acts were alleged to have occurred between May of 2009 and August of 2011.
The charges are a result of a wide-spread investigation which began more than two years ago involving the distribution of illegal drugs throughout Langlade County. Several other area residents were also charged and convicted in connection with the case.
Probation for woman linked to drug use with teens at Antigo home
A woman accused of allowing and joining area teens in the ingestion of illegal drugs, specifically marijuana, at her rural Antigo home has been given a year to prove she should not be convicted of a felony charge.
Tamie J. Yarie, 44, of N2448 Crestwood Road was placed on probation for one year Monday after entering pleas of no contest in Langlade County Circuit Court to three criminal counts.
She was sentenced on two of them, both misdemeanors, with judgment deferred for one year on a felony count of maintaining a place for the trafficking of drugs. Should she successfully complete probation and abide by specific rules, the felony count could be dismissed. If not, she risks going to prison for the next three and half years.
The sentence ordered by Judge Fred Kawalski was based on an agreement reached by District Attorney Ralph Uttke and Yarie’s attorney, Henry Schultz of Crandon.
The misdemeanor counts include a charge of possessing marijuana and an amended charge of contributing to the delinquency of a child. She was originally cited for child neglect.
The case dates to an investigation conducted earlier this year.
