Zach A. Grandy, 19, has been charged with four felony counts including possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and two counts of felony bail jumping.

He has also been charged with possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia, both are misdemeanors.

According to the criminal complaint, arrangements were made for Grandy to sell a teener (1.75 grams) of methamphetamine to a confidential informant. The complaint states that Grandy was already out on bond which requires the defendant not to commit any new crimes.

The Burnett County Sheriff’s office worked with members of the Polk County Sheriff’s office for this controlled buy.

On the day of the controlled buy, officers set up around the Grace Baptist Church. Authorities watched Grandy allegedly enter the parking lot and was subsequently placed in handcuffs.

At this point officers located the suspected methamphetamine and made their way to the house Grandy had exited before going to the church.

They secured the house at 319 James Avenue in Grantsburg while they waited for a search warrant. Once authorities obtained the search warrant they entered the house and found a number of items that were taken as evidence.

They located a pill bottle with 1.6 grams of crystal substance, a plate with a razor blade with white crystal residue, both tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine. Authorities also found a number of smoking devices and other paraphernalia in the house.

Grandy has a number of open cases in Burnett County and a pair of open cases in Polk County.

One of the cases in Burnett County, Grandy is charged with felony bail jumping and false imprisonment.

At a bail/bond hearing earlier this month law enforcement testified that Grandy had locked a woman inside their house at 820 S. Pine Street. Officers were not sure if they were dating at the time, but Mikal Anton of the Burnett County Sheriff’s Office said they had been romantically involved at one point.

This incident was preceded by the pair allegedly fighting near their home and in the street.

Grandy’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 30.
