A Chetek man whose drug use resulted in three felony charges within a 10-week period earlier this year is wanted on a bench warrant in Wisconsin and adjoining states after a hearing on Nov. 26, in Barron County Circuit Court.

Devin C. Peterson, 25, pleaded guilty to a pair of felony methamphetamine charges during his last court appearance in September, and was scheduled for a presentence investigation later the same month. But his probation agent told the court Nov. 26 that Peterson never showed up for the meeting and had not responded to attempts to contact him since then.

Peterson, then of Cameron, was arrested on a felony meth possession charge during a routine traffic stop on April 8, court records said. A week later, Peterson was arrested again when he was allegedly found in possession of meth during another traffic stop, this time in Rice Lake. A K-9 officer found the drug next to the passenger seat where Peterson was sitting at the time of the incident, court records said.

On June 21, Peterson was again charged with meth possession, as well as disorderly conduct and two counts of felony bail jumping, according to court records.
