Narcotics charge follows traffic stop
Police reported finding heroin on a woman whose earlier narcotics charge was dropped after meeting terms of a deferred prosecution agreement in 2017.
Tiffany L. Fronczak, 24, Weyauwega, was charged Jan. 26 with felony possession of narcotics.
On Jan. 25, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Strobusch contacted Deputy Nate Nelson and reported a red Mazda was speeding westbound on U.S. Highway 10.
Nelson moved to intercept the vehicle and stopped it on U.S. 10 near Kester Road in Fremont.
He was joined by Deputy James Santiago, who brought his K9 Cuda, and also by State Trooper Sarah Burdick.
Cuda’s behavior indicated the possibility of drugs in the vehicle.
After Burdick searched Fronczak unsuccessfully, Fronczak removed heroin from her underwear.
Fronczak was released from custody after posting a $500 cash bond.
On June 7, 2016, Fronczak was convicted of obstructing an officer and placed on one year of probation.
She entered a plea of no contest to a felony narcotics charge and was granted a deferred prosecution agreement.
Terms of the agreement included that she provide the district attorney’s office with monthly reports certifying her compliance, commit no crimes and not possess any illegal substances for one year.
On June 13, 2017, Judge Raymond Huber dismissed the narcotics charge.
