Reeseville man pleads guilty to cocaine charges

September 27, 2018

A Reeseville man pleaded guilty to cocaine-related charges on Tuesday.

Victor M. Adamemares was found guilty of one count of manufacturing/delivering over 40 grams of cocaine and one count of possession with intent to distribute of over 40 grams of cocaine, both felonies. Five other related charges were dismissed, but read into the record.

Adamemares could face up to 65 years in prison and $200,000 in fines. His sentencing hearing is on Dec. 10.

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.

A March search found 732.5 grams of cocaine in his residence, 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.

The government will file to dispose of the found money and firearms.
