A 24-year-old Waupaca woman charged with possession of heroin in May now faces additional jail time.
Stephanie R. Tankersley is charged with two counts of felony bail jumping.
On May 12, Tankersley appeared in Waupaca County Circuit Court on a felony heroin charge.
She was released from custody on a $5,000 signature bond with the condition that she have no contact with the other people named in her criminal complaint, including Joshua D. Parker, 34, Waupaca.
Parker has remained in custody on a $25,000 cash bail since his arrest and initial court appearance on May 20.
Investigators say Parker made more than 500 heroin deals between April and October 2014. The case involving both Parker and Tankersley is related to a heroin overdose in June 2014.
According to the criminal complaint against her, Tankersley visited Parker at the county jail on May 31, then again on June 3.
On June 5, Waupaca Police Officer Nicole Hahn was advised that Tankersley may have violated the conditions of her bond.
Hahn went to Tankersley’s address at the trailer park on Oak Street and left a message with her grandmother that Tankersley needed to contact her.
Later that evening, Tankersley called Hahn.
When Hahn said they needed to meet, Tankersley responded that the officer needed to speak with her attorney, the complaint says.
Hahn then asked Tankersley where she was and Tankersley reportedly said she was on her way to Fond du Lac, did not know when she would return, then terminated the call.
The following day, June 6, Hahn spotted Tankersley walking on School Street and arrested her.
On June 8, Tankersley was released from custody on a $5,000 signature bond.
