Two men accused of distributing fentanyl-laced heroin in Superior were bound over for arraignment following preliminary hearings in Douglas County Circuit Court Wednesday.
Marshawn Clark, 27, of Chicago, faces one count of possession with intent to deliver fentanyl. He waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday. Cody Tyler Hartling, 28, of Superior faces one count of party to possession with intent to deliver heroin. A third person, Kayla Joann Krygowski, 22, of Superior, also faces one count of party to possession with intent to deliver heroin. She made her initial appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court Thursday, Dec. 6 and released on a $10,000 signature bond.
According to the criminal complaint: The charges stem from a search warrant that was executed by the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force Nov. 27 at a residence on the 700 block of Fisher Avenue. Clark, Hartling, Krygowski, another adult female and a 4-year-old were present.
About 13.86 grams of fentanyl-laced heroin packaged in 25 smaller bags was found on Clark.
Hartling reportedly told officers he has known Clark for about eight years and that Clark was a source of heroin from Chicago. He described the heroin Clark brought with him as "fire" because it was laced with fentanyl. Hartling reportedly told officers that he was "running" for Clark, delivering drugs to customers and bringing the money back. He said a half gram sold for $80 and a full gram for $160.
If convicted, the felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $50,000. The next court date for both men was set for Jan. 18. Krygowski's next court appearance was set for Dec. 12.
