UPDATE: July 2018
Eau Claire County (WQOW) - One of the suspects in a major Eau Claire drug bust will spend three years on probation.
That sentence was handed down Friday by Judge William Gabler to Lindsy Beaver for her role in the seizure of nearly 40 pounds of marijuana.
Investigators said David Stewart, from Altoona, would mail marijuana from California to Beaver, and to Tyler Meyer who admitted he would then sell the pot and reimburse Stewart.
A search of Meyer's home also turned up butane hash oil, LSD and psychedelic mushrooms.
He returns to court at the end of the month. Police are still searching for Stewart.

Eau Claire County (WQOW) - A drug bust turns up nearly 40 pounds of marijuana, and now three local residents face criminal charges.
Tyler Meyer and Lindsy Beaver of Eau Claire, and David Stewart of Altoona (whose picture was not available) were charged Wednesday.
According to the criminal complaint, postal inspectors notified police of suspicious packages being mailed from California to Meyer and Beaver, and to Stewart's art gallery, Technicolor Mermaid, on Water Street.
A search of Meyer's home last month turned up the pot, a large amount of butane hash oil, psychedelic mushrooms and LSD.
Investigators said Meyer admitted Stewart would mail the marijuana from California, and he would reimburse Stewart after he sold it.
