Drug bust in Farmington
Two people face felony charges after deputies searched a Farmington residence.
Tiffany R. Powell, 31, Waupaca, was charged with maintaining a drug house and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Drew T. Leopold, 21, Oshkosh, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, felony and misdemeanor bail jumping.
On Sept. 21, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Strobusch and other officers executed a search warrant on the N2500 block of Duvenick Lane in Farmington.
According to the criminal complaint, Powell and Leopold were using the garage as a bedroom.
In the bedroom, the officers found a glass pipe, used needles, a foil bindle with a tan powder and a burnt piece of aluminum foil. The foils were sent to the crime lab for testing.
For the past two months, authorities have been receiving complaints about the Duvenick Street house.
On July 19, the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office received a request for a welfare check on a juvenile who was staying at the house.
On July 26, a visitor reported seeing a red bag containing syringes and vials of naloxone.
Deputies were also told about a juvenile who smoked meth with another adult while at the house.
On Aug. 8, Strobusch received a report that people who were out on bond for drug charges were frequently visiting the house for short periods of time.
Leopold was charged with arson and burglary on May 4 and held on a $1,000 cash bond.
The alleged arson involved a drug house on West Union Street in Waupaca.
On May 12, Leopold was released after his bond was amended to a $5,000 signature bond co-signed by his mother.
He was released with the conditions that he not possess any illegal drugs or drug paraphernalia.
He is scheduled for a plea and sentencing hearing on Nov. 13 on the arson and burglary charges.
After his most recent arrest in Farmington, Leopold was released on a $2,000 signature bond.
