Plea agreement closes 2014 drug sale case for area woman
space
Judgment on a felony count was deferred and two other charges were amended to lesser crimes as part of a plea agreement reached this week for an Antigo woman cited in connection with drug offenses at a Langlade area tavern.

Amanda Walrath, 29, of 313 Field St. was fined $200 plus court costs after pleading no contest to two misdemeanor offenses of possessing marijuana. She also pleaded no contest to the manufacture or delivery of marijuana but the count could be dismissed at the completion of a two-year term of supervision.

Additional counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and possession of an illegally-obtained prescription drug were dismissed.

Walrath was one of two people arrested in connection with the case which dates to a three-month investigation commenced in early 2014. It was based on tips forwarded to Langlade County sheriff’s officials regarding alleged drug transactions at Bob and Joni’s tavern. Assistance was provided by narcotics officers from the Forest County Sheriff’s Department.

According to a criminal complaint, the undercover officers first visited the tavern in late January where a conversation was overheard between Walrath an

Propane tank sales were fraudulent, Antigo man charged

An Antigo man has been criminally charged with the fraudulent sale of property he did not own.

Andrew D. Schroeder, 35, of 108 S. Hudson St. stood accused in Langlade County Circuit Court Monday with two felony counts of theft by false representation on allegations he knowingly entered into contracts with two different operations and accepted payment for products he failed to deliver.

The case involved the “sale” of propane tanks for which he was paid thousands of dollars. According to court documents, Schroeder took photographs of tanks at a local propane dealership and supplied them to buyers in both Michigan and Minnesota.

Each count carries a maximum prison term of six years, up to $10,000 in fines or both.

The case is scheduled to return before Judge John Rhode next month.

In an unrelated matter, a $500 cash bond was continued for Michelle L. McGhee, 45, of Bryant on charges linked to an incident Aug. 4 at America’s Best Inn.

According to a criminal complaint, McGhee was questioned based on her unusual behavior. Police said it was “obvious she was under the influence of some sort of stimulant,” and that drug was most likely metha

The accused include Richard D. Trzebiatowski, 54, his 44-year-old wife Stacy J. Trzebiatowski and Billiejean Herman, 20, all of W10666 Bear Lake Road.

The Trzebiatowskis each stand accused of four counts including the manufacture or delivery of marijuana, maintaining a place for the purpose of trafficking drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Richard Trzebiatowski is additionally charged with possession with intent to deliver narcotics while his wife is facing a simple count of possessing narcotics.
