A month after an 18-year-old Grafton High School student was charged with six felony counts of selling marijuana, two 17-year-old Grafton students were charged last week with felonies in connection with the case.

Hayden L. Hacker is charged with one count of being a party to crime of possession of less than 200 grams of marijuana with the intent to deliver near a park.

Mason T. Scott is charged with being a party to the crime of possession of between 200 and 1,000 grams of marijuana with the intent to deliver.

Previously charged was Jackson C. Orlowski, who is accused of selling more than a pound of marijuana to an undercover deputy.

Orlowski was 17 when all but two of the incidents occurred, and on at least two occasions he completed the sales after leaving school for the day, according to the criminal complaint filed in Ozaukee County Circuit Court. 

“Yeah, my school get out at 2:41 so I just gotta run home to grab it,” read a message he sent the undercover deputy on one occasion, the complaint states. 

Orlowski sold marijuana to the undercover officer on Sept. 19 and 25, Oct. 3, 12 and 31 and was in the process of selling the drug to a deputy on Nov. 28 when he was arrested, according to the criminal complaint.

He had allegedly obtained the drugs in Milwaukee and Sheboygan, and the sales to the deputy were largely arranged over Snapchat.

According to the criminal complaint, when Orlowski met the deputy to sell him a quarter-pound of the drug for $600 on Oct. 3 at Veterans Memorial Park in Grafton, he was in a vehicle driven by Hacker.

Hacker told deputies that he had driven Orlowski to sell marijuana twice, and was aware that he was selling a quarter-pound or more at a time, the complaint states.

The complaint also states that Scott had previously been involved in a drug transaction with Orlowski. When the deputy arranged to buy three-quarters of a pound of marijuana for $1,500 on Nov. 28, deputies watched Orlowski arrive home from school that day, then leave his house and get into Scott’s truck.

The two drove to Associated Bank in Grafton, then parked at a home in the Town of Grafton for about 30 minutes before heading to the Town of Saukville.

About that time, Orlowski notified the deputy he would be in Veterans Memorial Park 45 minutes later to complete the transaction, according to the criminal complaint. Deputies then stopped a car occupied by Scott and Orlowski and found the marijuana.

Orlowski told deputies that he had traveled with Scott to the bank to get money to buy the marijuana they were going to sell to the deputy, adding that when they were in the Town of Saukville, they left Scott’s truck behind and drove his aunt’s car, according to the criminal complaint.
