Oak Creek Man Charged After Police Find McDonald's Bag Full of Pills
Man was arrested on Milwaukee's north side and could face more than three years in prison if convicted of possession of narcotic drugs.
Oak Creek resident Nick Scott Grabowski faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines after he was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Saturday with one count of possession of narcotic drugs.
According to the criminal complaint:
On May 28, a Milwaukee police officer doing surveillance in the 4700 block of N. 50th St. saw Grabowski pull into the area. Grabowski appeared to the officer to be a "hype," a name for hypodermic drug users. He was also in an area where suburban residents often come to purchase drugs because of the competitive market.
Grabowski appeared nervous and stayed in his car, while another man walked out of a residence talking on a cell phone and motioned for Grawbowski to come by him, which he did.
The man then got into Grabowski's car and they drove back to the residence, where the officer saw a drug transaction. After the officer called for another squad, Grabowski was pulled over in the 4100 block of W. Hampton Ave.
Officers searched the car and found a McDonald's bag with 32 Oxycodone pills inside. Grabowski said he got the drugs through a friend he has known since high school, but wouldn't say if it was the same person with whom the undercover police officer saw him.
Grabowski is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail.
