Investigators from the Racine Police Department arrested a suspected crack-cocaine dealer Monday after finding drugs during a search of his house.

Marcus Lee Webb, 31, of Racine, told officers he was only selling crack-cocaine to provide for and, “Make his children happy,” according to a criminal complaint.

When officers searched the house, there were two adults, one of them Webb, and five children.

Officers found 6.2 grams of marijuana and 7.4 grams crack-cocaine in the home. Police also found a digital scale and numerous plastic baggies.

Webb is charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine with intent to deliver, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
