Law enforcement officials arrested a 65-year-old man suspected of running a drug house and two other men at a Racine home where large amounts of cash and heroin were found Monday night.
All three men are being held at the Racine County Jail and have not been formally charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.
Samuel Griffin, 65, of Racine, faces charges of possession of intent to deliver heroin and cocaine, keeper of a drug house for sales, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm by a felon, according to a press release by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.
Griffin was arrested in his home after members of the Racine County Metro Drug Unit, Drug Task Force officer from the Milwaukee DEA office and deputies from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department raided his home in the 4200 block of Durand Avenue.
While executing a search warrant, investigators found 50 grams of heroin, a ½ ounce of cocaine, a .357 handgun, body armor, cash, a digital scale and packaging material. The street value of the heroin is estimated at $6,5000.
Two Kansasville men — Jay Bulanek, 27, and Christopher Jones, 37, were at the home to buy drugs from Griffin. They were arrested for attempted possession with intent to deliver. Jones also faces having an enhancer on the charge for allegedly committing the crime while armed with a firearm.
