Oak Creek Man Busted In Drug Sting

Suspect allegedly sold high-grade marijuana to undercover police on two separate occasions.

A 42-year-old Oak Creek man is facing a felony drug charge after he allegedly sold marijuana to undercover police two different times.

David A. Lewandowski was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Tuesday with one count of delivering a controlled substance. If convicted, he could face up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

Undercover police set up a drug deal with Lewandowski in which they would purchase high-grade marijuana in the parking lot of a tavern near Highway 32 and Old Ryan Road. When they arrived, Lewandowski was standing in the parking lot and wearing a neck brace, and walked to the officer's car and conducted the deal.

The officer set up a second deal with Lewandowski on Dec. 19, agreeing to meet at a gas station on Chicago Road. Lewandowski told the officer he didn't remember him from the last time and wanted to move the deal to .

He was then taken into custody and admitted to "middling" marijuana sales for a short period of time.

Lewandowski is currently free on $1,000 cash bail.

So when your kid comes home higher than a kite you're going to complain that the police didn't do their job... Good job OCPD, getting scum off the street one at a time.

Eric, what would you prefer the OCPD to work on?

Seriously now? I understand and all but why are we putting so much effort into someone selling a little weed yet this State promotes drinking. The only State that allows me as a parent to take my kid to the bar and feed him or her booze. Hmmmmmmm just dont get it

If this is my neighbor, he grew up on the block, bought the house next door to his parents and raised his children. Excellent neighbor, never any problems, always helpful when help was needed. I know he hasn't worked much is this the result of the economy, is this the result of his struggle to pay his mortgage? He certainly would never sell to children. He own children are extremely well behaved and responsible, David has instilled good moral values as a parent. I just hope the courts don't ruin his life and cause him to lose his home for a little pot. Legalize POT, and recognize the revenues is my take. Prisons are way over crowed, Parole offices jammed. It's time to lighten up the pot laws. I for one would rather have a neighbor smoking pot than one on "legal" mental health drugs.

I agree with Mike B., We don't exactly have a murder problem, let's be proud of that. Vocal local, I hear your concern about a neighbor, and mistakes happen, I believe accountability is needed, but not to haunt him for the rest of his life. Great job to OCPD for the Sting, it should make every citizen feel like your tax money is going to a good cause, keeping the streets clean.
