Woman faces felony drug charges after police raid cocaine lab

A Wisconsin woman is facing multiple felony charges after police claim that the apartment she lived in doubled as a cocaine lab. Police allege that weapons and drug distribution materials were seized from the apartment. The woman is awaiting a preliminary hearing.

On July 3, police from the Racine County Metro Drug Unit executed a search warrant for an apartment that they claim was being used for ongoing drug-related activity. In serving the knock and announce warrant, police broke down the door with a ram, alleging that there was no answer at the door. Authorities claim that the apartment's kitchen contained drug manufacturing equipment. Police say that they seized multiple items of evidence from the residence, including scales, baggies, marijuana paraphernalia, small amounts of cocaine and heroine, and two 12-gauge shotguns.

The resident of the apartment, a 23-year-old Mount Pleasant woman, was charged with five felony counts on Aug. 28. These include counts for the possession of marijuana and illegal drugs, possession of a firearm by a person with a prior felony and maintaining a drug trafficking place. The woman was also charged with the intent to distribute cocaine. A $15,000 bond was assigned to her, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 11. If found guilty, the woman could face up to $80,000 in fines, as well as 33 years in prison.

Drug charges, like those for drug manufacturing or the intent to distribute, can bring with them serious consequences. If convicted of a drug-related felony, severe penalties such as fines and prison sentences can result. An attorney who has experience in drug trafficking charges may be able to help to reduce or eliminate the penalties through a successful defense in court or an acceptable plea bargain.
