An inmate already facing gun and drug charges is now in more hot water after he called a woman from jail and told her that the police didn’t find all the drugs and guns in his home.

Stacy Wright, of Racine, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with possession with intent to deliver or manufacture marijuana less than 200 grams (2nd offense), and three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. If convicted of all charges, Wright faces up to 33 1/2 years and/or fined up to $85,000.

These charges are in addition to the ones filed last week, which include possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana (2nd offense) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the criminal complaint, Wright called a woman while he was in jail on June 1 and told her that he had more marijuana and six guns in his room. During a prior search, officers with the Racine Police Department they only found one gun.

When investigators conducted the second search warrant on a home at 2515 Arlington Avenue, they found three more guns: a .44 revolver, a .357 revolver, and a .40 semi-automatic hand gun. K-9 Titan also found 33.8 grams of marijuana.

During a first appearance held Monday, Racine County Court Commissioner John Bjelajac set a cash bond of $20,000 for Wright. Bjelaja scheduled a preliminary hearing for 8:30 a.m. June 14.
