Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric J. Toney announced Monday (7/12/21) that Tony A. Weaver was convicted of 12 counts after a 3 day jury trial in Fond du Lac County. Weaver was convicted of 9 felonies, including possessing nearly 1 lb. (439 grams) of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver, eluding a traffic officer, felony bail jumping, and numerous other charges. The street value of the methamphetamine is estimated to be approximately $43,000.
District Attorney Toney stated “this was a significant law enforcement investigation that went across state lines and involved law enforcement agencies from the Fox Valley down to the Kenosha area, including local drug task forces.
