New London teen faces felony narcotics charge
Elias R. Meyer, 18, New London, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon and felony bail jumping.
On Jan. 2, Waupaca County sheriff’s Deputy Nick Traeger was driving south on Shawano Street in New London when he noticed a vehicle with what seemed like a loud exhaust. When he ran a check on the license plate, the numbers were registered to a different vehicle.
Traeger pulled the vehicle over and questioned the driver, Cody J. Lemmers, 18, Dale.
According to the criminal complaint, Lemmers said the plate was from another vehicle, but he had title to the car. When Lemmers opened the glove box, Traeger saw what appeared to be a plastic bag of marijuana.
Traeger questioned the front seat passenger, Meyer, about the marijuana, and Meyer said it was his. Traeger also found a white pill alleged to be Percocet and a small mirror with white powder on it inside Meyer’s jacket.
Inside the vehicle, Traeger reportedly found an air pistol between the passenger seat and the center console, a glass jar filled with 20 grams of pot, a plastic bag with just under 2 grams of pot, an air pistol in a backpack in the back seat and an air rifle in the trunk.
The marijuana and the air pistol by the front seat allegedly belonged to Meyer.
Lemmers was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and cited for unauthorized vehicle registration.
Carrying a concealed weapon is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of nine months in jail.
Possession of narcotics and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver are felonies with up to three years in prison if convicted.
At the time of his arrest on Jan. 2, Meyer was out on a $2,000 signature bond after being arrested for drug-related charges in November 2010.
