A Waupaca man was due in Waupaca County Circuit Court Friday afternoon facing multiple charges related to a downtown break-in last month. 43 year-old Chad R. O’Keefe faces felony counts of burglary and possession of narcotic drugs, along with misdemeanor counts of theft, criminal damage to property, possession of illegally obtained prescriptions, and possession of a controlled substance.
The criminal complaint alleges O’Keefe burglarized a downtown pharmacy in late December, taking large quantities of multiple drugs. If convicted, he could face up to 16 years in prison. O’Keefe is currently being held in jail on a probation hold.
