Drug bust in Waupaca
Police say they found psilocybin mushrooms on a man out on bail for meth charges.
Ryan H. Williams, 30, Waupaca, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony bail jumping.
Shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1, Waupaca Police Officer Diana Flatoff was advised of a possible drug deal in the alley behind the Waupaca Hotel on East Union Street.
When she arrived at the scene, Flatoff found two men and a dog inside a green Chevy Blazer.
The driver was identified as Williams, who was the vehicle’s registered owner.
The front seat passenger was Jonathan D. Neuroth, 27, Waupaca.
Both men were among eight people charged following Waupaca County’s three-month investigation into area meth distribution.
Both men had also been released from custody.
Williams had posted a $500 cash bond, and Neuroth had signed a $2,500 signature bond.
According to the criminal complaint, Williams and Neuroth said they were just sitting in the car talking about Williams’ troubled relationship.
Five more officers arrived at the scene.
Flatoff and a state trooper searched Williams’ vehicle and reported finding drug paraphernalia and suspected psilocybin mushrooms.
Williams is currently in custody on a $1,000 cash bond.
Neuroth failed to make a scheduled court appearance on Aug. 1, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
