Racine County arrest; Search turns up drugs, gun, cash, kids in home

A 27-year-old Racine County resident could face multiple criminal charges following the execution of a search by the Racine County Metro Drug Unit on Thursday, Aug. 4. 

Law enforcement executed the search at a residence near Superior and Kewaunee in Racine around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. This, after information had been developed that the suspect at the residence, identified by authorities in a news release as Jarvis Walker, was involved in the sales of crack cocaine. 

Officials say Walker’s lengthy criminal history indicates he is a convicted felon with a history of selling drugs and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Wisconsin. Walker is on probation for possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of cocaine. Walker is also currently out on bond for battery by prisoner, battery, and felony bail jumping.

  • 357 revolver
  • Military fragmentation jacket
  • Digital scales
