Police check of apartment leads to drug charges

Ozaukee Press Staff

A 56-year-old Saukville man is facing several drug-related charges after a neighbor told police he could smell marijuana emanating from the man’s apartment.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Ozaukee County Circuit Court, Saukville police were called to 151 E. Dekora St. on Sunday, June 7, after the neighbor called.

The officers did not smell marijuana until the resident, Alan Gordon, opened the door and stepped into the hallway. 

Gordon denied there was any marijuana in the apartment and was seized by the officers when he attempted to go back inside.

Armed with a search warrant, police officers found an array of drugs and drug paraphernalia, including 26 dirty syringes, four marijuana scales, marijuana pipes, a metal grinder, two glass containers containing hash oil, cocaine, a crack pipe, a vape cartridge containing THC oil, 22 bags of marijuana all labeled with various names, a Tupperware container filled with marijuana buds, a rock of heroin and a strip of wax paper laced with LSD.

The weight of the marijuana found in the apartment totaled more than a half pound.

Gordon is charged with possession of THC, narcotics, cocaine, drug paraphernalia, a controlled substance, and possession of THC with intent to deliver.

If convicted of all charges, he could be sentenced to nine years of initial confinement.  

Because he’s a repeat offender — having previously been convicted of heroin possession — Gordon could be sentenced to an additional four years in prison.

Ozaukee County Circuit Court Judge Steve Cain set cash bond at $7,500.
