The 48-year-old man was taken into custody for a probation violation.
Sheriff’s officials said the convicted felon has a lengthy criminal history involving drugs in Wisconsin and several other states. He was released from prison within the last year, and was on probation for possession with intent to deliver narcotics.
The following charges were recommended to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office in the latest case:
