A man accused in a case of squatting and burglary to an Antigo home in the fall of 2016 was finally in Langlade County Court to answer to the charges Tuesday afternoon.

Gregg K. Mitchell, 46, of Colorado is charged in two separate cases, one for burglary to a building or dwelling, a felony, the other a misdemeanor charge of fraud on innkeeper, non-payment.

Charges were filed against Mitchell in early January of 2017, while the alleged burglary occurred in October 2016, and the misdemeanor case dates back a full two years to August 2016.

Authorities were initially unable to determine Mitchell’s whereabouts and an arrest warrant was issued. He was finally apprehended in the area Monday, and appeared via video from the Langlade County Jail for Tuesday’s court appearance.

Both tools and beer were reported missing from the residence.

Heather A. Bazille-Grissius, 31, was brought to court from the Forest County Jail, where she is being held on a $75,000 cash bond, charged with first degree reckless homicide.

The drug charges stem from her arrest here, as she was not only found in possession of illegal substances during the booking process at the jail, a subsequent search warrant of her home turned up a plethora of illegal drugs and paraphernalia.

The resulting counts include maintaining a drug trafficking place, two counts of possession of narcotic drugs, one possession with intent to deliver THC charge, and another count of possession of cocaine.

According to online court records, Bazille-Grissius was arrested on Jan. 25 and was found in possession of five grams of marijuana, 11 Oxycodone pills, and four bags of heroin when she was booked at the jail.
