The owner of a Douglas County tavern is facing possible drug charges after almost a pound of marijuana was found at his establishment.
Christopher M. Zoltak, 37, of Lake Nebagamon appeared in Douglas County Circuit Court on Thursday for a bail hearing after his arrest on charges of possession with intent to deliver marijuana and receiving stolen property. Criminal charges are pending. He was released on a $2,000 signature bond, and is expected to make his initial appearance Thursday.
According to a Douglas County Sheriff’s Department report, deputies were conducting routine inspections for compliance at a number of county taverns with special agents from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue on April 23 when about 70 grams marijuana was found inside a freezer at Wasko’s Campground Plus. In addition to the marijuana, a stolen firearm was discovered. The law enforcement agents froze the premises, closed the bar and applied for a search warrant. The search turned up 434 grams (15 ounces) of marijuana in a number of different spots as well as prescription pills, marijuana grinders, digital scales and illegal fireworks. A number of guns were also seized.
