On Friday, March 1st, 2024 around 9:30 AM the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department’s Kenosha Drug Operations Group (KDOG), Tactical Response Team (TRT), and members of the Department of Homeland Security Investigations Team (HSI) conducted a joint operation to serve a search warrant at a residence in the 6600 block of 26th Avenue in the City of Kenosha.

KDOG was contacted last week by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in reference to an intercepted package en route to Kenosha, WI from Bogota, Colombia.  This package contained a set of Canariam Rollerblades.  With the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the wheels of the rollerblades were identified as suspicious.  The package was intercepted as a result and a series of presumptive tests were conducted on the wheels.  It was then discovered the wheels were infused with a gelatin-like substance that tested positive for the presence of cocaine.  KDOG initiated an investigation into the identified residence in the 6600 block of 26th Ave.  Detectives obtained information to petition the courts for the issuance of an anticipatory warrant.  That warrant was approved and was valid pending the delivery of the package to the residence. 

HSI assisted with the controlled delivery of the package and TRT conducted the search warrant after the package was accepted by residents of the home.  Once the residence was secured and turned over to KDOG, a search of the residence ensued.  The below list of items was recovered:

  • $3475 in USC
  • Money transfer documents from Kenosha to Bogota totaling over $30,000. 
  • Numerous forged documents including false permanent resident alien cards, social security cards, and Columbian identification cards. 

This investigation is active and ongoing with potential charges being sought on the individuals involved. No further information will be released at this time.

      1. Since rollerblades don’t need “false permanent resident alien cards, social security cards, and Columbian identification cards,” maybe—now stay with me here—the people who accepted the delivery of the rollerblades needed the “false permanent resident alien cards, social security cards, and Columbian identification cards” because they’re illegal aliens!

  1. Wait!
    You mean “illegals” are here in Kenosha and committing crimes?
    When are you brainless liberals going to hold your dementia patient president accountable? Hopefully the next person they kill is someone that you care about. Then maybe you might get it and we can all go about our lives like nothing happened, like you do now.

    1. When are you going to notice that just as many stupid white people are buying, selling, transporting and using drugs here too? Your lily white boys are currently out spreading fentanyl across Keno County, but all you can do is biatch that your Cheeto hued, broke ass cult leader can’t be president and play golf all day?

      Grow up. Trump’s currently drooling on his Big Mac and rambling about his pretend billions. While grown ups try to fix his messes. Repubs certainly aren’t helping right now… just complaining.

  6. Crooked Joe has been welcoming a million Colombian/Venezuelan and Nicaraguan aliens per year. Each one them were “paroled” which means given their right to citizenship. Our town is being infected by them. Less than a year in the US and they are flooding us with dope already. We will have to vote better and make sure the elections are clean. Otherwise, we will end up becoming another Mexican province.
