SPARTA, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- A Tomah man, arrested in connection with heroin trafficking, appeared in a Monroe County courtroom Monday morning.

33-year-old Donald Frantzen was arrested earlier this month in connection with a non-fatal heroin overdose of a Tomah resident.

Frantzen returned to his home as police were conducting a search.  Before his arrest, police state Frantzen tried to get rid of a baggie containing 10 grams of heroin.

Frantzen told police he purchased the drugs in Chicago and planned to sell it in the Tomah area.  

He faces nine charges, seven of which are felonies. He is currently in jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

Monroe County Circuit Court Judge J. David Rice on Monday declined to reduce bail, saying Frantzen is a flight risk.

He is set for a pre-trial hearing January 28.
