kd

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, at approximately 0600 hours, KDOG (Kenosha Drug Operations Group) executed a search warrant with the assistance from Kenosha Sheriff’s K9, Kenosha Police Department Gang Crimes Unit, MKE-DEA, and FBI Regional Task Force at a residence in the 1600 block of 50th Street, Kenosha, WI 53140.

KDOG members located Marijuana, Cocaine, Crystal Meth, a firearm, and a meth processing lab. Due to the strong chemical odors, and an unknown substance brown liquid the processing room was secured until a DEA Agent Certified Clan Laboratories Expert arrived to the scene. The scene tested positive for meth, and bagged kilos what was assumed as cocaine actually tested positive for methamphetamine.

These defendants were actively working a methamphetamine lab while purposely giving the Meth the appearance of powder cocaine and selling it as Cocaine.

The processing lab was used to convert crystal Methamphetamine into white powder that resembles cocaine and be sold as powder cocaine. The cutting agents are used to convert 1 pound of Meth into 4 pounds of white powder look alike cocaine Meth. Methamphetamine is produced in super labs in Mexico and much cheaper and more profitable to the drug cartels in Mexico who only serve as intermediaries for cocaine from the Columbian cartels.

The street value of the 3.7 grams of Cocaine is $370.00

The street value of the 11,084.5 grams of Tetrahydrocannabinols is $69,000.00.
