Merrill man sought on meth charges
space
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is joining with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections in seeking a Merrill man who absconded from electronic monitoring.

Christopher D. Meindel, 36, who is already a convicted felon for drug offenses, was released on a signature bond from Lincoln County Court after he was charged with multiple felony counts. They include possession of drug paraphernalia to manufacture, compound, convert, produce or store methamphetamine, knowingly possessing methamphetamine waste, storing ammonia in an illegal container and the manufacture or delivery of an amphetamine.

Officials said Meindel was living at a probation/parole housing unit on East Main Street in Merrill while awaiting further court appearances.

Officials said Meindel reported to his probation agent for a regular meeting. When he was requested to take a urine test to check for the presence of drugs, Meindel refused and fled the office.

A warrant has been issued for Meindel’s arrest for violating terms of his probation and deputies are seeking a warrant charging Meindel with a felony count of bail jumping.

Authorities said Meindel was traveling to the Baraboo area for work and may have fled there. He may have also cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet that was applied by Department of Corrections.

Persons with information on his whereabouts are asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (715) 536-6272 or Crime Stoppers at (715) 536-3726. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
