Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Three men are facing drug charges after thousands of dollars in drugs were confiscated from inside a Racine home during a drug raid.

According to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Office, a 33-year-old Racine man, 27-year-old Racine man, and a 20-year-old Kenosha man were arrested on drug charges. The arrests happened after law enforcement officials from the Racine County Sheriff’s Metro Drug Unit served a search warrant at 2:35 p.m. Tuesday at a residence located in the 1700 block of Douglas Avenue.

Investigators discovered 1 ¼ pounds of marijuana, over 100 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 163 hits of LSD, a ¼ ounce of cocaine, THC oil, and ecstasy. While the exact street value has not been determined, law enforcement officials believe it could be over $10,000.

Investigators found digital sales, drug packaging materials, drug packaging materials, drug paraphernalia, and cash inside the home.

The men are currently not in custody at the Racine County Jail, according to county records.
