Accused Tomahawk cocaine dealer waives preliminary hearingSubmitted: 04/23/2013
Story By WJFW News Team


MERRILL - A Lincoln County man arrested in an undercover drug bust waived some of his rights in court today.

45-year-old Andrew Prokudowicz appeared in Lincoln County Court facing cocaine possession and delivery charges. Police arrested him and two others in March.

Secret cocaine deals made by a Tomahawk Police informant helped lead to those arrests.

Prokudowicz waived his right to a preliminary hearing -- that's where the state has to prove probable cause of a crime committed.

With the waiver, the court entered a not guilty plea for the Irma man.

He'll be back in court May 2nd.
