RACINE — A Racine man allegedly had 1.3 ounces of cocaine and a machete in his car.

The White House is taking a measured response to the sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, insisting it supports the investigation led by the New York attorney general but refuses to say whether President Joe Biden believes Cuomo should step down.

Carlos Daniel Torres, 35, of the 1900 block of Phillips Avenue, was charged with a felony count of possession with intent to deliver cocaine between 15-40 grams and a misdemeanor count of operate motor vehicle while revoked.

According to a criminal complaint:

On Saturday, an officer conducted a traffic stop of Torres at West 6th Street and Racine Street. Torres’s license was revoked due to a prior OWI.

After the car pulled over, the officer made contact with Torres and the front seat passenger. A search of the car was done and there was 36.9 grams of cocaine inside a Ziploc bag. Two cellphones were found and a machete was located in the back seat. Torres said he was aware of the cocaine but claimed it wasn’t his.

Torres was given a $10,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit court on Monday. A preliminary court hearing is set for March 11 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
