BURLINGTON — A 26-year-old man has been charged with four felonies after allegedly selling heroin to a police informant multiple times.

Dustin L. Bodnar was charged Friday with three counts of manufacture/deliver heroin as well as maintaining a drug trafficking place.

According to a criminal complaint, Bodnar delivered less than three grams of heroin to an informant on three separate occasions, once at a gas station in the town of Dover and twice at Bodnar’s home, between Dec. 3-14. The informant was wearing a wire and reporting to an agent with the Racine County Metro Drug Unit, the complaint stated.

Police also found Bodnar stored and delivered controlled substances at his Burlington home, in the 300 block of South Westwood Avenue, according to the complaint.

Each manufacture/deliver heroin charge carries a maximum sentence of 12 1/2 years in prison and $25,000 in fines, while the drug house charge could lead to up to 3 1/2 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

    This is where the police need to use aggressive tactics in order to make him snitch

    Spend more time trying to understand why laws, rights, and bond amounts are in place rather than criticizing the 2 of 3 branches of govt. If you don't want your home searched, don't store evidence there. And most certainly don't sell a schedule I controlled substance out of it. No crime = no problem.

    And the whole point of our judicial system is "innocent until proven guilty." While we all know who is really "guilty" before a trial ever happens, the bond amount is really just to ensure compliance with future court dates, based on the severity of the alleged offense.

    Yet the person who committed 1st degree murder (killed that girl 15 years ago) had his bail reduced from I mil to 500k. Yet a person with a drug abuse habit (non-violent) faces close to same penalties.
    Alice needs to be hung until dead.
