A 32-year-old town of Norrie man is due in court Wednesday on child neglect and a range of drug trafficking charges, according to a Marathon County Sheriff’s Department news release.
A four-year-old child was removed from the home when Alan E. Pearcy was arrested Monday, police said. A search of the home revealed about 280 grams of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia including lighting and chemicals consistent with a marijuana grow operation, police said.

He is being held in the Marathon County Jail until his initial appearance.
