SHEBOYGAN — A Sheboygan man is facing drug charges after selling marijuana to a police informant at Sheboygan area stores.
21-year-old Alex M. Sepstead, of 2332 Carmen Avenue, Apt 1B in Sheboygan, was charged with five drug-related felonies on Monday in Sheboygan County Court. He is out on $1,500 cash bond.
According to the criminal complaint, an investigator supervised a controlled buy involving a confidential informant and Sepstead at Best Buy in the Village of Kohler. The two made arrangements where the informant would pay $200 for an ounce of marijuana, which Sepstead would provide. In the parking lot of Best Buy where the buy had been set up, the investigator observed Sepstead driving a black Cadillac.
The informant had purchased what later amounted to be 55.4 grams of marijuana from the man.
One month later, the informant purchased 55.9 grams of marijuana for $400 from Sepstead in the Walmart parking lot in the Town of Sheboygan. An investigator once again supervised the controlled buy and reported Sepstead drove to Walmart in a black Cadillac.
Last week, a third controlled buy was planned to have occured in the parking lot of Marcus Sheboygan Cinema. The informant was going to purchase two ounces of marijuana for $300. Prior to the controlled buy, however, a traffic stop of Sepstead’s vehicle was conducted.
The vehicle, which Sepstead was driving, was searched and officers found one bag of marijuana weighing 57.5 grams, the amount the informant was to purchase, and a second bag containing three grams of marijuana as well as a rolled blunt.
Officers then searched Sepstead’s residence on Carmen Avenue on Sheboygan’s south side where they located 433.7 grams of marijuana, four smoking pipes, a scale, and an unmeasurable amount of suspected THC wax.
