RACINE — A Racine man was charged Friday with allegedly selling cocaine out of Double D’s bar, according to a criminal complaint.

Armando Barrios, 36, was charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place and five counts of delivering cocaine for sales to a police informant.

The initial sale to the informant allegedly took place at RoJo’s Bar, 1317 Yout St., after which Barrios reportedly held sales at Double D’s bar, 1307 Douglas Ave., according to the complaint.

Barrios reportedly told the informant that he “owns Double D’s and the bartenders and everyone works for him.”

During one of the alleged sales, Barrios reportedly went to the bar’s basement stairs to retrieve cocaine before bagging it, according to the complaint.

The informant reported that Barrios, 1922 La Salle St., reportedly quoted him a price for an ounce of cocaine, adding that he only ever kept a half an ounce on him because police would “be more lenient with that amount.”

Barrios made his initial appearance in court on Friday and was held on cash bond amounts of $50,000 and $10,000. If convicted on all charges, Barrios could face up to 36 and a half years in prison.

Barrios’ alleged girlfriend, Pamela Baker, 54, 1502 North St., Racine, was also charged Friday for maintaining a drug trafficking place, but was released on a $5,000 signature bond.
