Posted on 04/29/2022
A Pleasant Prairie Police Officer, assisted by an officer from the Kenosha Police Department, stopped a vehicle at 2:00 p.m. on April 28 in the 2500 block of 104th Street for a traffic violation. Upon stopping the vehicle, the officers noted it was reported stolen from Elk Grove, Illinois.

A 32-year-old male from Mount Prospect, Illinois, was operating the vehicle and taken into custody. Officers searched the vehicle and located a bag containing suspected Cocaine, Fentanyl, Marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. After being detained, the driver was transferred to the Kenosha County Jail, and held on felony drug charges that include Possession with Intent to Deliver Cocaine, Possession with Intent to Deliver Fentanyl, Possession with Intent to Deliver THC as well as Operating a Vehicle without the Owner’s Consent.

The Pleasant Prairie Police Department is committed to taking the necessary steps to protect the community from dangerous drug trends. The presence of the narcotic Fentanyl is a growing and troubling concern locally and nationally. Cases like these highlight a critical lesson, that many street drugs are contaminated and contain a potent opioid that often leads to death.
