A Waupaca man is due in Waupaca County Circuit Court next month on drug charges. 68 year old Gary J. Herwig faces felony counts of possession of narcotic drugs– 2nd offense, and possession of illegally obtained prescriptions– as a repeat offender. Herwig is also charged with drug paraphernalia. The complaint alleges Waupaca Police found heroin and quantities of multiple pills in his apartment during a search in early August. The 2nd offense and repeater enhancements stem from his conviction in 2017 for delivery of marijuana. Herwig could face up to 3 and a half years in prison if convicted. He will make his initial court appearance December 3rd.
