RACINE — Racine Police reportedly found 32 bottles of what appeared to be the “date rape drug” after responding to a call about a residence that was allegedly stealing electricity from a neighboring residence.

Racine Police responded to the 3300 block of St. Clair Street on July 2 for a report that extension cords were running from a home to a neighboring residence without the owner’s permission, according to a criminal complaint.

After police responded, an investigator with suspicion about the house allegedly stealing electricity did a “swipe” of the garbage at the residence there. Subsequent testing determined that inside the garbage were Dixie cups that had residue of GHB (Rohypnol) also known as the “date rape drug,” the criminal complaint says.

Based on that information, a search warrant was executed on Tuesday. Inside, officers reportedly found drug paraphernalia used to smoke methamphetamine, several bags of methamphetamine, a cooker with white residue on it and numerous pills. Officers also reportedly found four clear vials and 32 dropper bottles containing a clear substance that officers identified as GHB, although the substance needed to be transferred to the crime lab for further testing because there is no field test for the substance, according to the criminal complaint.

Following the execution of the search warrant, Racine Police arrested four men on drug charges.

They arrested Orlando L. Bellamy, 41; Alexander L. Johnson, 33; David M. Kipp, 37; and Justin R. Shelby, 28.

All shared a listed address at one home on St. Clair Street, according to their criminal complaints.

Clarification: The original article about the date rape drug was unclear about where the drug was allegedly found. The error has been corrected.

    This reporter should do better job of checking facts. I'm almost positive that GHB and Rohypnol (roofies) are two totally different things. Positive now with two google clicks. Two SEPARATE "date rape drugs" Come on JT reporter !!! Have some work ethic.

    So they saved probably dozens of women from being raped, along with the lifelong trauma that goes with it.

    You are a disgusting liberal.

    "an investigator with suspicion about a neighboring home on the same street did a “swipe” of the garbage at the residence there"

    Say what? So this had nothing to do with stealing electricity. It's a story about Racine Police searching the garbage of a random house on a street. Sure it's legal, but maybe people in Racine need to be a little more careful what they put out on the curb. What's next, infra-red cameras?
