A Kenosha man is facing more that 20 year behind bars for allegedly maintaining drug trafficking home in Kenosha. He made his first appearance today in court. On Friday morning, at approximately 9:00 AM the Kenosha Drug Operations Group (KDOG), KSD Tactical Response Team, and KPD Special Investigations Unit (SIU) conducted a joint operation and served a search warrant at a residence in the 6800 block of 14th Avenue in the City of Kenosha.
Tyrone Price Sr. was taken into custody. Over $2,500 in U.S. currency, 883.5 grams of THC/Marijuana product, 3.5 grams of cocaine, and .7 grams of heroin were seized.
During the search warrant, 23 dogs were located and turned over to KPD Community Service Officers (CSOs) for transport to Safe Harbor. Based on the number of dogs/puppies, it is believed that an illegal breeding operation was also occurring in the residence. That investigation is being handled by KPD CSOs.
Price is facing four drug-related felonies and the maximum exposure is more that 20 years in the Wisconsin Prison system.
Kenosha County Assistant DA Tricia Riley was in court today and asked for a $10,000 cash bail. The court ordered a $5,000 cash bail and ordered he have no contact with pets, especially dogs. Price is expected in court March 9 at 9:30 am for a preliminary hearing.
