Reeseville man to make plea on drug charges

August 17, 2018

JUNEAU — A plea hearing has been scheduled for a 39-year-old Reeseville man who is charged with keeping large amounts of cocaine in his home.

Victor M. Adamemares, currently in the Dodge County Jail, appeared for a status conference Thursday in the courtroom of Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Martin De Vries.

Adamemares is charged with five counts of manufacturing or delivering cocaine (up to 40 grams), one count of possession to deliver cocaine (more than 40 grams) and one count of maintaining a drug trafficking place. He could face a sentence of up to 166 years in prison and a $610,000 fine if convicted.

The Dodge County Drug Task Force along with the Jefferson County Drug Task Force and the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation conducted a drug investigation over several months that resulted in a search warrant being executed at a residence in the town of Lowell on March 15.

According to the criminal complaint, a confidential informant began purchasing cocaine from Adamemares in December and continued to buy the drug for around $1,500 once or twice a month.

On March 15, the residence where Adamemares lived was searched after a warrant was obtained. A small bag containing cocaine and a large bundle of cash was found in a nightstand in a bedroom at the home and money was located in his truck. Additional amounts of cocaine, cash and weapons were found at several locations throughout the residence.

The search found 732.5 grams of cocaine, which equates to 1.6 pounds and $9,039 in cash as well as three guns, including an AK47, according to the criminal complaint. Police estimated the street value of the cocaine at $30,000 to $35,000.

Adamemares plea hearing will be held on Sept. 25.
