A drug bust on Center Street in Waupaca resulted in charges against two women and one man.
Edward A. Schierland, 26, Waupaca, is charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver, possession of cocaine, obstructing an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and four counts of misdemeanor bail jumping.
Angelina M. Magruder, 26, Waupaca, is charged with aiding a felon and obstructing an officer.
Krystal A. Edming, 29, Waupaca, is charged with illegal possession of a prescription drug.
On the evening of Monday, Sept. 22, Waupaca police were called out to a residence on the 600 block of Center Street. The caller said four people were in the basement doing drugs.
From the caller’s description, Sgt. John Helgeson recognized the male as Schierland. He knew there was an active warrant for Schierland’s arrest and that he had recently run from Portage County deputies, according to the criminal complaint. Helgeson called for assistance.
When Helgeson, Waupaca Police Officer Wesley Zube and Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Chad Repinski arrived, the woman who let them into the building said Edming was living at the house and currently with several friends taking drugs in the basement laundry room.
Helgeson and Zube went downstairs and ordered the four people to exit the laundry room.
Schierland initially identified himself as “Matt.” However, Helgeson recognized Schierland, who was then escorted out of the building to a squad car.
Inside the laundry room, Helgeson found a brown bag with syringes, clothing and a small black scale. He also found a pill container with four small plastic bags. In three of the bags were a total of 1.4 grams of heroin and in the other bag was 1.5 grams of cocaine.
Police also reported finding a prescription stimulant pill in Edming’s jacket pocket.
Magruder initially told police that her name was Lisa Jensen, the complaint says. Edming identified Magruder to the police and said Magruder gave her the pill.
