Credit card debt allegedly forces Wisconsin man to sell drugs

Sometimes life can leave people in situations where they don't know what to do. It may leave a person frustrated and unable to figure out a solution to the problem.

One Wisconsin man didn't know what to do when he found himself in credit card debt. The amount was great and he was not sure how he would make his payments. With seemingly nowhere else to turn, he and a friend allegedly decided to sell cocaine to make enough money to pay the credit card debt. Now he is facing serious charges for drug crimes.

According to Brookfield police, the two men tried to sell them a large amount of the drug. The undercover police officers set up a deal to purchase the cocaine. The plan was to meet and exchange the drugs for money.

The report states that the two men agreed to the meet up, transporting to the drugs themselves from another state. They apparently met up with the undercover officer, unaware that they were being investigated. However the deal went through and immediately after, the two men were arrested and taken into custody.

Though the man maintains that he only tried to sell the drugs to pay off his debt, he and his friend are facing very serious drug charges. The charges include:

  • Manufacturing cocaine
  • Delivering cocaine
  • Maintaining a place for drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to manufacture and delivery cocaine

These charges could mean more than 40 years of prison for both young men, significantly altering their future. They are being held in custody, likely until their court appearance. Hopefully the two understand how serious the charges are and will take the necessary steps to protect both their rights and their futures.
