Manitowoc County man has bond set after drug bust

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Bond has been set at $100,000 for a Manitowoc County man arrested in a large marijuana bust.  

39-year-old Brian Guilmette of Collins was arrested over the weekend. Authorities said Monday that Calumet County officers were planning to buy drugs from Guilmette, when they caught him with 8 pounds of pot and $1,000 in his vehicle.

The Manitowoc County Metro Drug Unit then searched his home. There, officials said they seized 78 pounds of marijuana, and around $35,000 in cash.  

The pot was said to be worth $300,000.

Investigators said the drug apparently came from California -- and some of the bags had coffee grounds which may have tried to hide the drug's scent during shipping.

Guilmette appeared in Manitowoc County Circuit Court Monday for a bond hearing. Charges are expected to be filed by the time he's due back in court June 23rd.
