Meth charges make their way to court
space
A trio of individuals involved in a traffic stop last week which yielded numerous drug charges, including felonies, were in Langlade County Circuit Court on Monday.

Ben Dvorak, 22 , Crandon, along with Jamie Marten, 34, 1212 1/2 Fifth Ave., and Angela Snow, 48, 1216 Fifth Ave. all have high cash bonds in their cases.

Marten’s bond is the highest, $5,000. She is charged with two felonies, including possession of amphetamine with intent to distribute, and possession of narcotic drugs. She also faces a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia count.

Dvorak has a $4,000 cash bond and faces charges of felony possession of amphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of narcotic drugs.

Snow’s bond is $3,000 cash, while she also stands charged with a single felony count of possession of amphetamine with intent to distribute.

The trio was stopped on March 15 in the city of Antigo, and according to online court records, a search of the vehicle uncovered a number of drug and drug related items, including multiple jewel bags of methamphetamine, a jewel bag containing meth in crystal form, and several pills identified as a schedule II narcotic, and a pipe with marijuana residue inside.

All appeared via video feed from the Langlade County Jail.

A number of cases, both old and new, were also heard before Judge John Rhode Monday, and methamphetamines were at the heart of several.

—Janet Bailey, 48, 813 Martin Ave., had a $2,000 cash bond established in her case. Bailey is charged with felony possession of methamphetamine, felony bail jumping, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by police March 13, in which a jewel bag of meth, a pill for which she did not have a prescription, and a pipe common with drug use was allegedly found in her purse.

—Eric Peterson, 46, Laona, had his cash bond continued in his case, in which he stands charged with a felony count of possession of methamphetamine, along with misdemeanors for bail jumping and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to court records, a law enforcement officer responding to a call from a homeowner asking for assistance in removing Peterson and another individual from her home, discovered drug paraphernalia in plain view in his bedroom. A search revealed straws and jewel bags containing the drug, as well as numerous needles.

—Kory Deacy, 26, 633 Irving St., had a signature bond of $2,000 set on three counts of retail theft. All of the counts involve merchandise allegedly taken from the Antigo Wal-Mart. According to online court records, the total amount of the items taken in the three separate incidents is just over $433.

—Justin Spiegl, 20, Deerbook, saw his bond set at $100 cash for felony bail jumping. Spiegl was found in the company of a female he was under a court order to have no contact with after a rollover accident Sunday afternoon.

—Craig Cameron, 22, Minocqua also had a $100 cash bond established for felony bail jumping. Cameron was allegedly consuming alcohol at an underage drinking party in the town of Elcho on March 17. He had been ordered to maintain absolute sobriety as he was on bond in two pending felony matters in Vilas County.

A number of not guilty pleas were also entered on Monday. They include:

—Timothy King, 40, White Lake, not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct. King is accused of shoving his minor daughter during a disturbance at his home in February. According to records, the daughter was upset over his drinking and had attempted to pour out his beer, leading to the exchange.

—Michael Kaestner, 56, 2005 Fifth Ave., also plead not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct. Kaestner was taken into custody after the second 911 call from his Fifth Avenue home on March 6. According to court records, a woman called originally to request assistance in removing an intoxicated Kaestner, who was given a ride to the Safety Building. She would later apparently pick him up and allow him to return, only to contact authorities again when another argument became physical.

—Alex Hitz, 28, W10552 First Ave., entered a plea of not guilty to a count of operating while revoked, OWI related and two misdemeanor counts of bail jumping. Hitz was said to be behind the wheel of a vehicle pulled over by Antigo police after veering in and out of the proper lane of traffic in the early hours of March 4.

—Patrick White, 50, Wittenberg, entered his not guilty plea to a charge of knowingly violating a domestic abuse order. According to online records, White’s ex wife contacted authorities to report harassing text messages from him. Police reviewed the messages between the two and found one that concerned a subject outside of the parameters of the injunction.
