Investigators make undercover purchases in Waupaca
Nicholas W. Schulke, 29, Waupaca, is charged with three counts of delivery of heroin and one count of drug trafficking.
Law enforcement began investigating Schulke as a possible heroin dealer in February.
On Feb. 13, an informant working with the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office, the Waupaca police and the state Division of Criminal Investigation arranged to buy heroin from Schulke.
According to the criminal complaint, the informant went to Schulke’s residence at the Tower Apartments in Waupaca where he purchased three bindles of heroin weighing a total of 0.68 grams for a total of $100.
On March 24, the informant spoke with Tori Clark, a 21-year-old Waupaca woman, who had been arrested and charged after police found heroin and meth in her vehicle during a traffic stop.
Investigators say the informant gave Clark a ride to Schulke’s apartment, parked behind the Eastside Mobil station on Royalton Street and waited until she returned with a bindle of heroin.
On May 5, the informant contacted Schulke and arranged to meet him in the parking lot of the Kwik Trip on Fulton Street, where they exchanged three bindles of heroin for $100, the complaint says.
Because Schulke’s apartment, at the time of the first two purchases, was within 814 feet from Riverside Park, he faces additional penalties for selling drugs near a park.
