RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man and his girlfriend are facing several charges, after a drug bust netted 11 pounds of marijuana and over 14 grams of cocaine.
The Racine County Metro Drug Unit raided a house Tuesday morning, and took a 23-year-old man and his 21-year-old girlfriend into custody.
The marijuana was valued at $57,000 – an approximate street value for the cocaine was not released. Deputies said they also seized an assault rifle, two handguns, several rounds of ammunition, and almost $3,000.
Officers said they also took away an unspecified amount of new clothing and shoes, plus 75 bottles of cologne.
Both suspects were taken to the Racine County Jail. They were booked on possible charges of possessing marijuana and cocaine with the intent to sell, maintaining a drug place while armed, and possessing drug paraphernalia.
Sheriff’s officials say they continue to investigate.
