A 25-year-old Laona man, charged with felony bail jumping, misdemeanor bail jumping and resisting or obstructing an officer, made an adjourned initial appearance in Vilas County Circuit Court last week.

Rolland J. Starr had a preliminary hearing set for May 22 at 9 a.m. His $250 cash bond was continued.

According to the complaint, law enforcement officers were conducting a missing person investigation at a Lac du Flambeau residence March 8. Rolland, who answered the door, allegedly denied that anyone else was in the house. Officers said they saw someone walk past the front door inside the house and Rolland still denied that someone was there. Rolland was arrested for obstructing and the missing person was later located in the residence, according to the complaint.

According to court documents, Starr also has one open felony case in Oneida County and three open misdemeanor cases, with two in Vilas County and one in Oneida County.

In other felony cases, Logan J. Peterson, 18, of Lac du Flambeau, charged with two counts of manu­fac­ture/delivery of schedule I or II narcotics and two counts of possession of an illegally obtained prescription, had a preliminary hearing set for April 4 at 8:30 a.m. 

According to the complaint, Peterson allegedly sold oxycodone hydrochloride tablets to law enforcement officers in two controlled purchases Nov. 2, 2018, and Nov. 7, 2018, in Lac du Flambeau.

Peterson also faces charges of felony bail jumping, misdemeanor bail jumping and possession of an amphetamine, LSD or Psil­ocin. His preliminary hearing for those charges also will be April 4.

According to the complaint for those charges, law enforcement officers were searching for Peterson for allegedly pointing a pistol at a juvenile. Authorities located Peterson sleeping in a basement of a Lac du Flambeau residence at 11 a.m. March 1, 2019. Peterson said he only had a BB gun and didn’t know where it was at the time. Officers located a backpack next Peterson that allegedly contained a baggie with two pills identified as MDMA/Ecstasy, according to the complaint.
