Felony drug charges filed
A Waupaca man is accused of traveling to Weyauwega to sell meth.
Andrew L. Tessen, 28, is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and misdemeanor bail jumping.
On March 15, Weyauwega Police Officer Justin Malueg observed a vehicle with a faulty license plate lamp traveling slowly on North Pine Street. It then turned into the BP gas station, which was closed at the time.
Malueg followed the vehicle into the station and initiated a traffic stop. The officer noticed the aroma of burnt marijuana when he contacted the driver.
Tessen was a front seat passenger in the vehicle.
Malueg questioned Tessen, who eventually admitted to being in Weyauwega to meet with a potential Facebook customer to sell drugs, according to the criminal complaint.
Police reported finding small amounts of meth and pot in Tessen’s possession.
Tessen was charged with misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct on Feb. 27 and released on a $1,000 signature bond.
After his arrest on March 15, Tessen was released on a $5,000 signature bond.
