An Eagle River, Wisconsin man has been arrested and charged for distributing methamphetamine in the Upper Peninsula.
Justin Dames O’Dell, 35, is facing seven felony charges: one count of possession w/intent to deliver methamphetamine, two counts of delivery of methamphetamine, two counts of maintaining a drug house, delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet from a park, and delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet from a school.
In December the Gogebic Iron Area Narcotics Team (GIANT) began investigating O’Dell who was allegedly distributing methamphetamine in the Gogebic County Area.
Officers executed a search warrant on O’Dell’s vehicle on Jan. 27 by conducting a traffic stop in Wakefield. During the search, approximately one ounce of methamphetamine along with packaging supplies and a digital scale were found.
O’Dell was arraigned in the 98th District Court and is currently lodged at the Gogebic County Sheriff’s Department with bond set at $200,000.
He faces a maximum of more than 64 years on the charges, if convicted.
