Wisconsin woman charged with running a drug house

A Wisconsin Rapids woman is appeared in court on May 20 to face charges of running a drug house in Plover. This is the second court appearance for the woman. Her first appearance, in early May was continued to give her time to find legal representation. The woman, 29, is charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place, possession of heroin with the intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

According to details in the criminal complaint, Stevens Point Police Department, Plover Police and Portage County Sheriff's Department had a search warrant to search the home where the woman and another person lived. During their search, the police allegedly found items associated with selling drugs such as scales, aluminum cookers, needles, marijuana pipes and baggies.

Police say that the woman allegedly told them that the other person who lived in the home bought the heroin in another part of Wisconsin and brought it back to sell. The woman also allegedly told police that the man also gave her heroin about 50 times during their relationship. The man denied the woman's involvement in the crime. However, police say they found text messages between the pair detailing information such as the weighing of heroin and drug transactions.

The preliminary hearing for the woman is in June. She is no longer in jail. She was released on $5,000 signature bond. Many individuals are accused, arrested and charged with drug crimes. However, they have a right to legal representation to prove their innocence. Since drug charges such as running a drug house are serious crimes, individual should request the help of a criminal lawyer to help with their cases.
