Comments Off on Narcotics Task Force Search Warrant in Liberty Results in Felony Methamphetamine Charges

A 46-year-old Stillwater man was charged with possession of methamphetamine last month after the Washington County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at his home in the Liberty neighborhood.

Troy Larry Wojtas was charged by the Washington County Attorney’s Office on March 28 with third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

According to the criminal complaint:

A detective with the narcotics unit received information that Wojtas was selling methamphetamine out of his home in the 3600 block of Pine Hollow Place.

On March 25 a judge signed a warrant for narcotics agents to search his home and vehicle. The next day, the drug task force executed that warrant.

Upon gaining entry into Wojtas’ home, detectives were told he was not currently home, but would be returning soon. At that same time, Stillwater police located Wojtas driving his vehicle near the area of his home and conducted a traffic stop.

Officers allegedly located a blue plastic bag containing 3.8 grams of methamphetamine on the driver’s side floorboard of his vehicle, the complaint states. During the search of his home, detectives allegedly found another small bag containing 2.5 grams methamphetamine in his bedroom.

In all, the total amount of methamphetamine police located during the search was 6.3 grams, according to the complaint. Wojtas was arrested and transported to the Washington County Jail.

While at the jail, Wojtas allegedly admitted that the methamphetamine police found in his vehicle and bedroom did belong to him, the complaint states. He allegedly told police he is “addicted to methamphetamine and that he does sell it to several people,” reportedly describing himself as the “middle­man” when it came to the sale of methamphetamine.

According to court records, Wojtas was convicted of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance going back to June 2006 in Washington County.

If convicted of the current charge, he could face a maximum of 30 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
