Plover woman charged in conspiracy to deliver meth to inmates
By Joe Bachman
STEVENS POINT — In March, a Plover man was charged for delivering drugs to inmates inside of the Portage County Jail. On May 17, a second party to the alleged crime has been charged in connection.
According to reports, in January of this year, an investigation was launched into the possible delivery of illegal substances to inmates by 32-year-old Plover resident, Christopher Orlowski. On Jan. 17, various books were delivered to an inmate, with another inmate’s name written on the inside, identified as 31-year-old Jennifer Pitsch, of Plover.
There were faint yellow water marks located in the binding on certain pages. Through a recorded phone call between Orlowski and Pitsch, police would find that certain pages were marked “the down” while others were marked “the up”.
On Jan. 26, more books were delivered with similar findings. Police believed that these pages were soaked in a liquid form of methamphetamine, to be later used by inmates.
On Feb. 20, Pitsch was interviewed by police and allegedly admitted working with Orlowski from the inside to have the methamphetamine-laced books delivered into the jail.
According to authorities, Pitsch had also been working with 35-year-old Angela Miller, of Plover, who has also been recently arrested and charged for separate offenses of selling crack cocaine.
If convicted, Pitsch faces up to 12 years and six months imprisonment, as well as additional fines. Her next court date is scheduled for June 11.
