According to a criminal complaint:

On March 17, an agent with the Racine County Metro Drug Unit had a confidential informant perform a controlled buy of meth from Garcia in their hotel room at the Travel Lodge at 3700 Northwestern Ave. The informant met with Garcia and was given a plastic baggie containing 1 gram of methamphetamine.

Garcia was given a $1,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Monday. A preliminary hearing is set for June 17 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
