Local authorities have charged a 10th suspect in one of the largest drug conspiracy cases in Shawano County. There were nine suspects named in the original criminal complaint, which increased by one after 30-year-old Thomas J. Rotter of Krakow was charged with one felony count of conspiracy to deliver marijuana. Rotter joins his co-defendants, as he also faces a maximum prison sentence of 15 years and fine of $50,000 if convicted. According to the criminal complaint, Rotter garnered the attention of authorities after a 2015 traffic stop, which led authorities to suspect his involvement, as well as his 30-year-old fiancé from Krakow, of drug activity. His fiancé has not been charged in the matter. The criminal complaint reveals that after obtaining a search warrant, they found evidence on the 30-year-old woman’s phone indicating the two were involved in the distribution and sale of large quantities of marijuana and large amounts of opiate pills. Authorities eventually connected Rotter to the other parties named in the criminal complaint, including 52-year-old Daniel Hofman, the man believed of providing the marijuana and hash oil by transporting it from California. Rotter was released on a $25,000 signature bond and will make his adjourned initial court appearance on March 20.
