WISCONSIN RAPIDS – On May 9, charges were filed for six Marshfield residents for a May 5 incident, when Marshfield officers were called to a home on West Arnold Street.
According to the criminal complaint, police found a 20-year-old Marshfield man who was unresponsive from what appeared to be a drug overdose. Narcan was administered and the man became more alert.
When officers questioned the 20-year-old, identified as Gavin C. Leffel, the man stated that he and Jamison A. Steger, 20, drove to a house on Oak Avenue where they obtained what they believed to be cocaine. After using the substance, Leffel said that “he didn’t feel right and was very sweaty” and “didn’t remember anything else” until he awoke.
A search warrant was obtained for the residence, which is also the home of Steger; Kaylie J. Lyon, 19; and Kayla K. Krause, 19; and various items of drug paraphernalia were located, along with various types of suspected drugs.
A search warrant was also obtained for the South Oak Avenue home where the substance, believed to be cocaine, was purchased. At the residence, officers spoke to Deontae A. Logan, 19, who state that he did not deal drugs but lined up a deal for heroin. According to court records, Logan said that Steger came to his house and another man at the residence, Kadareen L. Ellis, 22, sold Steger and the others a substance in exchange for cash. Ellis denied any involvement in dealing drugs.
Ellis and Logan were each charged with felony counts of first degree reckless endangering safety and manufacture/delivery of heroin, and a misdemeanor count of neglecting a child.
Leffel was charged with possession of narcotic drugs, a Class I felony, and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Steger received charges of felony possession of narcotic drugs and felony possession of THC – second offense, along with a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Krause received two misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of THC. Lyon was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
