MARSHFIELD — A Marshfield woman was arrested and charged with manufacture/delivery of heroin following a Jan. 31 transaction in the city of Marshfield.
Using a confidential informant, the Marathon County Sheriff’s Department worked in conjunction with Marshfield police to arrange the purchase of heroin at the residence of Cassandra M. Staab, 26, on South Walnut Avenue in the city of Marshfield.
According to the criminal complaint, at the Staab residence the confidential informant purchased a piece of paper with contents that Staab claimed to be heroin for $70.
The contents of the paper were handed over to officers following the transaction. Officers tested the contents for the presence of heroin, which tested positive.
Staab was taken into custody and charged with the manufacture/delivery of heroin, a Class F felony that could result in up to $25,000 in fines and/or up to 12 years and six months imprisonment.
On the day of her arrest, Staab had a pending case in Wood County on four counts of delivery of heroin, three counts of maintaining a drug trafficking place, and one count of heroin possession with intent to deliver. Staab also had a pending court case in La Crosse County for battery and disorderly conduct.
In both cases Staab was released on bond on the condition she not commit any more crimes. Both bonds were in force when she was arrested Jan. 31.
Staab was also charged with a Class H felony count of bail jumping and a Class A misdemeanor charge of bail jumping. The Class H felony charge comes with $10,000 in fines and/or up to six years in prison.
