Suspects sought for failing to appear

Suspects sought for failing to appear

Local law enforcement authorities were seeking two suspects who allegedly failed to appear in court to face drug charges, the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team said Dec. 28.

Todd Michael Perszyk, 53, has failed to appear after posting bail from a July 24 arrest that included a foot pursuit, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office Det. Sgt. John Keegan said.

He was found to be in possession of about 80 grams of methamphetamine and 50 grams of heroin when he was being arrested Keegan said.

A $40,000 warrant was issued for Perszyk’s arrest Dec. 22.

Perszyk is described as being 5 feet, 9 inches, 195 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information on the Port Angeles man’s whereabouts is asked to phone law enforcement.

Stephanie Dawn Lingvall, 32, also of Port Angeles, was arrested Jan. 31, 2016, after an OPNET informant allegedly purchased heroin from her, Keegan said.

Lingvall was granted a court-ordered release and failed to show up for court, prompting another arrest on July 1, Keegan said.

Port Angeles police developed probable cause that Lingvall was in possession of heroin at the time of her second arrest, Keegan said.

After posting a $5,000 bail, Lingvall was arrested again in September for investigation of possession of a controlled substance.

She pled guilty to that charge and served 69 days in jail.

Lingvall, however, “has not appeared as instructed for the original delivery charge,” Keegan said in an OPNET news release.

A $5,000 warrant was issued for Lingvall’s arrest Dec. 5.

Lingvall is described a being 5 feet, 3 inches, 105 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to phone law enforcement.
