RACINE — A Racine man accused of being a drug dealer allegedly had cocaine, LSD and meth in his car after he fled from a traffic stop this week.
Adrian G. Diaz, 28, of the 1200 block of Virginia Street, was charged with felony counts of possession with intent to deliver narcotics, possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession with intent to deliver between 5-15 grams of cocaine, possession with intent to deliver less than or equal to 1 gram of LSD, and attempting to flee or elude an officer. He also faces misdemeanor counts of obstructing an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to a criminal complaint:
On Wednesday, an officer was monitoring traffic on Hoffert Drive near North Beach when she saw a traffic violation occur and learned that the driver, Diaz, had warrants for his arrest. The car began to drive at a high rate of speed while the officer tried to conduct a stop. The car eventually came to a stop at the 1600 block of St. Clair Street, and Diaz fled from the car.
Officers pursued Diaz and saw him try to throw a bag over a fence. He was eventually detained. He said he ran because he had a warrant. An officer searched the car and saw a grocery bag containing 9.9 grams (approximately one-fiftieth of a pound) of cocaine, 1.4 grams of meth, a piece of paper that tested positive for LSD, and multiple phones.
A pipe used for smoking marijuana and an open container of alcohol were also found.
Diaz was given a $25,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Thursday. A preliminary hearing is set for June 24 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
