A New London man faces multiple drug charges after police executed a search warrant at his home.
Robert W. Marsh, 46, New London, was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of an illegally obtained prescription drug, possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and delivery of marijuana.
On Dec. 19, 2013, New London Police Officer Chase Schroeder was conducting surveillance outside of Marsh’s home on Waupaca Street. An anonymous tip had reported suspected drug activity at the house.
At approximately 2:30 p.m., Schroeder observed a silver Dodge Durango pull into the driveway. About 15 minutes later it left.
Schroeder ran a records check on the Durango’s license plate. The plate registration was suspended, and the vehicle’s owner had an active warrant for his arrest.
Schroeder followed the vehicle, then pulled it over. He questioned the driver, who said he purchased $25 of marijuana from Marsh, the complaint says.
Police obtained a search warrant and returned to Marsh’s residence shortly after 6 p.m.
Marsh gave them a key to a safe in a closet. Police reported finding large stacks of bills, two glass jars with prepackaged plastic bags with marijuana, some amphetamines and stimulants.
Marsh was convicted in June 2003 in Fond du Lac County of possession of drug paraphernalia.
