One of four defendants charged with her involvement in a heroin and methamphetamine drug ring in Manitowoc County made a court appearance this afternoon. Clarice Smith waived her preliminary hearing on two felony charges including possession with intent to deliver. Meanwhile Darryl Reynolds who’s charged with manufacture delivery of heroin had his hearing rescheduled until he obtains legal counsel. Myron Pieschel faces two charges including manufacture/delivery of heroin and Jeffrey Truettner is charged with three felonies of manufacture of heroin. Earlier this month, investigators from the Manitowoc County Drug Unit took the suspects into custody following multiple controlled purchases of heroin in Manitowoc and Rockford, Illinois over a four-month period. Authorities believe Reynolds could be responsible for 135 to 200 thousand dollars of heroin sales in Manitowoc. Reynolds remains in the county jail in lieu of $250,000 cash. Smith is in jail on a $20,000 cash bond. She has a settlement conference with the DA’s office scheduled for August 9th & a plea date set for September 27th. Pieschel had his bond modified to $7500 cash but remains in jail. His settlement conference is set for July 27th with an August 25th plea date. Truettner is free on a $1000 cash bond and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 10th.
