Raymond J. Magruder, 19, Waupaca, was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of an illegally obtained prescription, theft and felony bail jumping.
At 5:25 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30, Sgt. John Helgeson was advised of a drug complaint on the 700 block of Berlin Street.
Helgeson met with a woman who said she, Magruder and two other men had been remodeling the house. She went into a bedroom to speak with Magruder and found him with a syringe and a vial, according to the criminal complaint. She believed he had just finished injecting himself with heroin.
Magruder allegedly started crying and arguing with a co-worker, then went outside, vomited and rolled around in the grass. After awhile, he calmed down and returned to work, the complaint says.
Later that day, another worker said he caught Magruder with a syringe, so the woman who was in charge of the remodeling project called police.
The woman gave Helgeson and Detective Sgt. Tim Myers, with the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office, permission to enter the house.
They found Magruder in a bedroom. The only things in the bedroom were two rolls of carpet, a backpack and a plastic bag.
Inside the backpack, Helgeson reported finding several small white pills, a syringe, a small amount of marijuana and a purple pipe.
Helgeson transported Magruder to Riverside Medical Center for clearance prior to taking him to jail.
According to the criminal complaint, Magruder accused the woman of selling the pills that were found in his backpack.
Helgeson later returned to the house and spoke to the woman. She said she had a prescription for Lorazepam, which she denied selling to Magruder. When she checked her purse, several pills were missing from her prescription bottle.
On June 23, Magruder was charged with five counts of burglary and four counts of theft. He was released on a $3,000 signature bond with the condition that he not commit any crimes.
On Sept. 2, Judge Raymond Huber set a $5,000 cash bond as a condition of Magruder’s release from custody.
