A seven-month undercover operation netted a 37-year-old man last week who now faces 13 felonies for allegedly selling drugs that ranged from narcotics to cocaine to an Ozaukee County sheriff’s deputy in Saukville.
Ray M. Calderon of Kewaskum was arrested last week in the parking lot of the Walmart store at 825 E. Green Bay Ave., where he sold more than $3,000 worth of drugs to the undercover officer beginning in August, according to the criminal complaint filed Monday in Ozaukee County Circuit Court.
Calderon is charged with eight counts of delivering narcotics and three counts of manufacturing-delivering cocaine, felonies each punishable by a maximum 10 years in prison and five years extended supervision.
He is also charged with one count of delivering designer drugs, a felony punishable by a maximum seven years, six months in prison and five years extended supervision, and one count of manufacturing-delivering marijuana, a felony punishable by one year, six months in prison and two years extended supervision.
Calderon is charged with selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a youth center — the Feith Family Ozaukee YMCA on Northwoods Road — and therefore faces an additional five years in prison for each charge.
According to the complaint, the undercover operation began Aug. 23 when Calderon sold 10 Percocet pills to the undercover deputy for $80. Percocet is a narcotic pain-reliever that contains the controlled substance oxycodone.
By September, Calderon was selling the officer larger quantities of multiple drugs, the complaint states.
At one point, he told the deputy he could procure any type of narcotic drug, saying, “I’ve got my hands on all of it, and if I don’t got it, I can get it,” according to the complaint.
The largest single drug deal occurred in October, when Calderon sold the deputy cocaine, Percocet pills and ecstasy tablets for $970, according to the complaint.
The last drug deal occurred on Feb. 15, when Calderon was arrested shortly after selling the undercover officer oxycodone, the complaint states.
During a hearing Monday, Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams set bail for Calderon at $25,000.
