Two Racine men were arrested for trafficking drugs and guns out of a house on the 900 block of Delamere Avenue.
David J. Ozier, 23, and Gyeontae M. Gwinn, 25, were arrested after a search warrant led police officers to discover just over a pound of marijuana along with weapons and ammunition.
Before executing the search warrant, police pulled Ozier and Gwinn over Wednesday afternoon. Police say there was a bag of marijuana next to Gwinn. Police believed Ozier had concealed something on his person, and it was later discovered at Racine County Jail he had concealed 15 grams of marijuana.
Officers brought them back to the house to execute the warrant.
During the traffic stop and search of the house, police found: Over 600 grams of marijuana, a shotgun, a stolen Glock .45 pistol, a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun, a semi-automatic rifle with bayonet attached, 30 round rifle magazines, a 50 round drum handgun magazine, over 200 rounds of various ammunition, over $4,000 in cash, multiple gallon-size bags with marijuana residue and materials for packaging drugs.
Ozier is charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with resisting an officer, possession of THC with intent to sell, maintaining a drug trafficking place, receiving or concealing stolen property and five counts of furnishing a firearm to an unauthorized person.
Gwinn is charged with theft of movable property, possession of THC with intent to sell, and four counts of possession of a firearm as a felon.
Editor’s note: This story was revised to correctly characterize the amount of marijuana that was found. The previous version overstated the amount. We regret the error.
