Marijuana found in Antigo home, man arrested
A small room transformed into space for the growing of marijuana was uncovered at a Graham Avenue residence Wednesday.
Antigo police made the find during execution of a search warrant. The tenant, a 34-year-old man, is now in local custody.
Along with a marijuana plant and other amounts of dried marijuana, police recovered various crop-related items including lamps, fans, soil and a hydration system.
Various items of paraphernalia were found as were educational books including “Indoor Marijuana Horticulture,” “The Bong Bible,” and “Professor Lee’s Introduction to Growing Grade A Bud: Marijuana 101.”
The suspect is being referred to the district attorney’s office on counts involving the manufacture or delivery of marijuana and possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Suspect in overnight thefts caught after jump from roof
Good police work and a tip from the public are being cited as keys to an early morning arrest of a subject who jumped from a second story roof in a failed attempt to escape.
The 20-year-old man was the target of an investigation involving yet another rash of thefts from vehicles similar to those reported over a several week span earlier this spring. Officials believe he was involved in most, if not all, of the break-ins.
Although charges have yet to be filed in any of the cases, the suspect is currently jailed on a probation hold as the investigation continues.
“Our officers did a great job and we appreciate the assistance of county deputies,” Chief Eric Roller said, giving equal credit to a resident’s report of suspicious activity immediately upon spotting something amiss.
Close to a dozen properties were hit overnight, mainly in the 1300 block of Seventh Avenue as well as along Third Avenue and Lincoln, Deleglise and Elm streets. In many of the instances, the vehicles were entered but little was stolen. Change was taken from others.
“In all of these cases it appears they were looking for money,” Roller said, suggesting that drug use may
Third person charged in local drug house investigation
A $1,000 signature bond was continued in Langlade County Circuit Court this week for an Antigo man who law officers allege was involved in the sale of an illegal drug.
Tyler Z. Steckbauer, 20, of 104 Dorr St. is one of three people charged in connection with a March 13 raid of a North Avenue home. It is alleged that methamphetamine was being produced inside the home.
Steckbauer’s charges include a felony count of delivery of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to court documents, Steckbauer allegedly admitted to participating in “drug transactions” with at least two other people. Recorded jail house telephone calls also linked Steckbauer to the use of syringes and needles “for the purpose of injecting controlled substances.”
The case is scheduled to return to court for a status conference on June 8.
Reserve Langlade County Judge Fred Kawalski set bail on a number of other newly-filed cases. Included were as follows:
