Charges filed in 'bath salt' arrests
space
Criminal charges have been filed against four individuals arrested here earlier this week after the vehicle they occupied was found littered with evidence of drug use, including that of both marijuana and “bath salts.”

The four include Max R. Brummer, 24, of Weston; Rachel F. Gerber, 25, of Rothschild; Kerrie Podhora, 19, of Eagle River; and Jacob Leiterman, 19, of Antigo.

Brummer and Gerber are both charged in Langlade County Circuit Court with three offenses — possession with intent to abuse a hazardous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing an officer for allegedly providing a false name. Brummer is charged as repeat offender and is being held on a $2,500 cash bond. Gerber’s bond was less, sitting at $1,000 cash.

A $200 cash bond was set for Podhora who is charged with one felony — obtaining a prescription drug by fraud — and two misdemeanors — possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Leiterman was allowed release on a $1,000 signature bond on misdemeanor counts involving possession with intent to abuse a hazardous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All of the cases were adjourned to later dates to allow the defendants time to contact an attorney.

The counts date to May 9 when a Langlade County sheriff’s deputy stopped their vehicle as its registration plates didn’t match the model of the car.

Officials said Brummer and Gerber initially gave false names, evidently to conceal the fact that one of them was wanted on an active warrant and the other on a probation hold.

Podhora, the driver of the vehicle, gave the deputy consent to search the vehicle and that is when the drugs were found. Among the items seized were a case containing several small bags of suspected bath salts, pipes and assorted paraphernalia. A backpack contained more pipes, a torch and pieces of glass with a razor blade. Another backpack held pipes and a tin holding several empty bags consistent with packaging used for bath salts. A bottle of prescription pills was also found in the car.

The suspected drugs were tested and were positive for both A-PVP, a bath salt, and marijuana.
