A 28-year-old Milwaukee man is facing a felony drug charge after he was arrested in an undercover sting and then allegedly tried hiding the evidence on a 10-year-old child with him.
Casey Jamal Johnson Jr. was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Tuesday with one count of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted, he faces up to 12 ½ years in prison and $25,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
officers working undercover in the 4200 block of W. Ryan Road spotted Johnson selling a police informant $100 worth of heroin. After the deal took place, Johnson was pulled over and arrested shortly afterward.
The money used in the transaaction was found on a 10-year-old in the car with him. Johnson admitted to the sale and hiding the money on the child.
He also told officers he threw the rest of the heroin out the window after being pulled over, though officers watching the scene didn't see it.
He's free on $1,000 bond while awaiting trial.
