A SWAT team made forced entry into a rural Waupaca home Thursday, May 7, after a three-month undercover heroin investigation.
The Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office reported finding 11.5 grams of heroin with a street value of more than $5,000 in a residence on the N2000 block of Shadow Road in the town of Lind.
The couple who live there now face multiple felony drug charges.
CyrIL A. Franz, 32, Waupaca, is charged with three counts of delivery of heroin, one count of possession of heroin with intent to deliver, drug trafficking and felony possession of marijuana. He has been charged as a repeat offender due to a prior narcotics conviction in December 2013.
Racheal Clumpner, 27, Waupaca, is charged with drug trafficking, possession of heroin with intent to deliver and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Franz and Clumpner are both in custody. Judge Raymond Huber set a $150,000 cash bond for Franz and a $25,000 cash bond for Clumpner.
According to the criminal complaint, the investigation began on Friday, Feb. 13, when an informant working with Waupaca police and county deputies arranged to buy $160 of heroin from Franz inside the Waupaca Kmart store. The informant gave 0.4 grams of heroin to investigators after making the purchase.
On March 17, the informant reportedly made another $160 heroin purchase from Franz at his home on Shadow Road. Franz’s girlfriend, Clumpner, was present at the time of the purchase, the complaint says.
On May 5, police say the informant made a third heroin purchase, this paying $300 for 0.63 grams of heroin at Franz’s home.
Two days later, the Waupaca County SWAT team and agents with the state Division of Criminal Investigation breached a patio door and entered Franz’s home to execute a search warrant.
They reported the equivalent of 115 doses of heroin, along with marijuana and $1,140 in cash in Franz’s pocket.
The serial numbers of nearly a dozen $100 and $20 bills matched those that investigators had earlier used to purchase heroin from Franz, the complaint says. Investigators had recorded the serial numbers of the bills used in making the drug buys.
