Second of three people arrested in June drug raid sentenced to probation

Two people arrested in June when authorities raided a Wadena home and seized multiple pounds of illegal drugs have accepted plea deals and been placed on probation.

Connie Marie Wilson, 60, pleaded guilty to possession of cannabidoil with intent to deliver (Class C felony), possession of marijuana with intent to deliver (Class D felony) and failure to affix a drug tax stamp (Class D felony) as part of an agreement with prosecution that included the dropping of six other charges.

On Monday in Fayette County District Court, she was placed on two to five years of supervised probation.

If she violates that probation, the three suspended jail sentences she received — a 10- and two 5-year terms — could be imposed. More than $3,000 in fines and surcharges were also suspended.

According to court documents, Wilson was one of three people arrested June 17 after the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at 16628 Empire Road, where she resided. Authorities seized more than a pound of psychedelic mushrooms, four pounds of marijuana, about a half pound of methamphetamine, and about 3.5 pounds of THC oil cartridges/vapes, plus drug paraphernalia, baggies, scales, pipes and cash, says criminal complaints.

Another resident of the raided home arrested, Frederick Alan DeGreif, 53, accepted a plea deal and was sentenced in September to 1 to 2 years of supervised probation on a pair of suspended prison sentences of 2 years apiece. Around $2,000 in fines and surcharges were also suspended.

DeGreif pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine-second offense (aggravated misdemeanor) and possession of mushrooms-second offense (aggravated misdemeanor). Two other counts were dismissed.

A jury trial is scheduled for February for the third person arrested — Steven Boleyn, 56, of Elgin. He is charged with possession of methamphetamine as a habitual offender (Class D felony).
