A 31-year-old Saukville man accused of selling marijuana in 2019 and 2020 made his initial appearance in Ozaukee County Circuit Court last month — a year after he was charged — and last week was bound over for trial.

Tony A. Holland waived his right to a preliminary hearing during a Dec. 15 hearing before Judge Sandy Williams and pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of manufacture/deliver THC.

Holland was charged in November 2001, but his whereabouts were apparently unknown and a warrant for his arrest was issued. Court documents show he had been living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

According to the criminal complaint, a confidential informant working with authorities purchased butane honey oil vaping cartridges that contained THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, from Holland outside his home on Northwoods Drive in Saukville in February and March 2019.

The informant paid Holland a total of $200 for the cartridges.

More than a year later, on Oct. 14, 2020, another informant purchased $300 of marijuana from Holland, according to the complaint.

The informant said he went into Holland’s home, where Holland took marijuana from two large Mason jars, weighed it and packaged 28 grams of it in a Ziploc bag, the complaint states.

According to court records, Holland lived in Port Washington before moving to Iowa and now lives in Saukville again.

He is currently free from jail in lieu of $5,000 bail. Williams ordered him not to possess or use controlled substances and not to leave Wisconsin, although during last week’s hearing she modified the conditions of his bail to allow out-of-state travel.
