Cops seize 1/2-pound of methamphetamine
A phone call from jail led police to a suspect’s home.
Bonnie J. Piskorski, 55, Ogdensburg, was charged June 13 with possession of amphetamine with intent to deliver as party to a crime, possession of drug paraphernalia to convert methamphetamine, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
On March 23, drug enforcement investigators learned a package containing crystal meth was being shipped to LeeRoy R. Blank, 36, and Erica R. Ducommun, 33. Piskorski is Ducommun’s mother.
On March 24, Ducommun and and Blank were arrested at a casino.
Shortly before 9 a.m. on March 24, investigators recorded a call between Piskorski and Blank while he was in Brown County jail.
According to the criminal complaint, Blank told Piskorski where to find his vehicle and $5,000 that was still in the vehicle.
In a second call at 2 p.m. on March 24, Blank allegedly told Piskorski to expect a package in the mail with 128 basketballs.
Police say “basketball” or “8-ball” is a term used by drug dealers for 3.5 grams of meth. Investigators suspected there was nearly 1 pound of meth in the package.
On March 25, officers executed a search warrant at Piskorski’s home on Kriese Road, in Ogdensburg. They seized 222 grams, about 7.8 ounces, of meth which they found hidden in a barbecue grill.
On Nov. 29, 2012, Waupaca County deputies executed a search warrant at Piskorski’s home on E-Z Road, in Royalton.
They seized $925 in money orders, more than $1,685 in cash and about 14 grams of white powder found in various plastic bags and as residue.
Piskorski was charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver, possession of cocaine with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug trafficking place on the same day the meth charges were filed.
She remains in custody in Waupaca County on a $50,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in court on June 19.
Ducommun is still in Brown County jail on a $10,000 cash bond.
Blank is in Waupaca County jail on a probation hold for felony failure to pay child support.
Brown County has an active warrant for Blank’s arrest after he failed to make a court appearance on May 9.
