Ginseng Nets Big Fines

Written by

A company in Wisconsin and Minnesota that was convicted of buying and selling illegally harvested wild ginseng has agreed to pay $100,000 and accept a two-year ban on transactions involving the gnarled root. Wiebke Produce Inc., which is also known as the Wiebke Fur & Trading Company, has stores in La Crosse and Eitzen, Minn. The company pleaded guilty in August to violating an anti-poaching law.

During a plea hearing Thursday, company official Thomas Wiebke acknowledged that the company repeatedly bought wild ginseng that was harvested in Wisconsin without a license. The company said Friday it planned to provide a statement responding to the plea hearing.

Ginseng is prized in China, Korea and other Asian countries. Consumers say the bitter root eases stress, fatigue and insomnia

An out-of-county judge has now been assigned to hear the drug possession case of former La Crosse cop Brian Thomson.

On-line court records show that Monroe County Judge Todd Ziegler will preside over the case, to avoid a possible conflict of interest with La Crosse judges who routinely work with local police. The state justice department has assigned a special prosecutor. Formal charges were filed against Thomson yesterday...more than two months after he quit the La Crosse Police following an internal investigation. Thomson is accused of stealing drugs that were seized as evidence in criminal cases, and he was caught tampering with a phony drug package planted in the evidence room.
