Brian John Walcher, 60, of Menominee, was arraigned before the Honorable Robert J. Jamo in the 95-A District Court on Wednesday, December 14th following his recent arrest in the City of Menominee. Menominee County Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey T. Rogg charged Walcher in an eleven-count felony complaint, alleging two counts of Delivery of Cocaine and Possession with Intent to Deliver Ecstasy/MDMA, each of which carries a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. In addition, Walcher was charged with a single count of Maintaining a Drug House, and six-counts of Felony Firearm. The charges arise from the execution of a search warrant by the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) at 1011 14th Avenue in Menominee. In addition to the cocaine, six handguns, four rifles, digital scales, suspected psilocybin mushrooms, seven pounds of marijuana, and $9,1494 in Unites States currency was found and seized. Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Rogg says, “I have seen in the last couple of years a rather dramatic up-tick in drug busts and substantial drug dealers being eradicated by the police and of course I am very heartened by the effect of law enforcement.”
Walcher’s Probable Cause Conference is scheduled for January 3rd at 11am and his Preliminary Examination is set for January 25th at 2pm. Bond was established by Judge Jamo in the amount of $10,000, cash only, for Walcher.
