WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Two area men received felony drug charges in Wood County Court for incidents involving methamphetamine.
On Oct. 10 Marshfield police conducted a search of a Marshfield home where individuals on probation were known to reside.
During the search officers found a syringe with liquid in the residence and a pill bottle containing a crystal substance in a van parked on the property. Both substances tested positive for containing methamphetamine. Officers also located drug paraphernalia that tested positive for the presence of THC.
According to the criminal complaint, upon questioning, 29-year-old Adam J. Berdan admitted that the methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia belonged to him.
Berdan is being charged with possession of methamphetamine second offense and higher, a class I felony that could come with a $10,000 fine and/or three years and six months imprisonment if convicted, as well as a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Ricky J. Rosplock, 32, of Arpin was charged in Wood County Court following an incident in which the Wood County Sheriff’s Office worked in conjunction with the Central Wisconsin Drug Taskforce.
On May 15 officers used a confidential informant to arrange a transaction in the Bethel Health Center parking lot, where the informant allegedly exchanged cash for a substance provided by Rosplock that later tested positive for methamphetamine.
Rosplock has been charged with delivery of methamphetamine second offense or higher, a class F felony that comes with a $25,000 fine, 12 years and six months imprisonment, or both if found guilty.
