Mauel appointed interim police chief

Shawano Police Lt. Dan Mauel will take over as the department’s interim chief when Mark Kohl retires next month.

Mauel was named by the police and fire commission Tuesday after a lengthy closed session.

Kohl’s last day on the job will be April 3. He submitted his retirement letter to the city on Jan. 26.

The commission on Tuesday accepted the letter with some apparent reluctance, as commissioners seemed hesitant to make the motion.

“It’s a hard motion,” commission President Tony Zielinski said.

The motion was finally made and passed unanimously.

Zielinski said after the meeting that Mauel was a good fit for interim chief.

“Dan Mauel has been doing many of the responsibilities of the chief’s position,” he said. “He’s a direct connect to the chief currently. So it’s going to be maintaining what he’s been doing, with the additional ability to manage the department and have everybody answer to him.”

10th person charged in drug investigation

The number of defendants charged in a massive drug conspiracy case being called one of the largest ever seen in Shawano County has grown to 10.

Thomas J. Rotter, 30, of Krakow, was charged Friday with one felony count of conspiracy to deliver marijuana. He could face a maximum 15 years in prison and a $50,000 fine if convicted.

Rotter was one of the first subjects that came to the attention of authorities before the extent of the case was known.

A traffic stop in December 2015 led authorities to suspect drug activity by Rotter and his fiance, a 30-year-old Krakow woman who has not been charged.

Evidence taken after a search warrant on the woman’s cellphone indicated the couple were engaged in quarter-pound to multi-pound sales and distribution of high-grade marijuana and significant quantities of opiate pills, according to the criminal complaint.
