A man is in jail after officers found meth in his truck while it was parked outside the probation office.
Justin R. Bleck, 30, Fremont, is charged with possession of methamphetamine, second offense, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Feb. 17, Bleck was convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia in Outagamie County. Initial charges of possession of paraphernalia to manufacture meth were dropped from the original criminal complaint.
He was placed on 18 months of probation with conditions that he maintain absolute sobriety, not have any drugs or alcohol on his premises and not associate with known drug dealers or drug users.
On June 13, Bleck was cited in Outagamie County for possession of drug paraphernalia.
On June 22, Waupaca Police Officer Brett Rodenz was dispatched to the state Probation and Parole Office on Churchill Street to transport Bleck to the Waupaca County jail.
A short time later, a probation agent contacted Rodenz and reported that Bleck had told her his vehicle was not in the office’s parking lot. She discovered it was there and became suspicious.
Rodenz returned to the probation office. Probation agents searched Bleck’s pickup truck and reported finding a small amount of meth in the driver’s door pocket and 2.4 grams of meth in a tool box in the truck’s bed.
Rodenz then returned to the jail to question Bleck about the meth.
According to the criminal complaint, Bleck told Rodenz, “I’ve been good for a couple of years until about three or four days ago and I did a little bit of it.”
Bleck is currently being held in Outagamie County jail.
