A 32-year-old Racine man was charged with three felony charges after he made a series of drug purchases last year, but he failed to appear in court Tuesday.

Bradley E. Ammon was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with two counts of manufacturing/delivering heroin and a felony charge of manufacturing and delivering cocaine. The heroin-related charge carries a fine of $25,000 and 12 years, six months in prison, while the cocaine charge carries a fine of $25,000 and 10 years in prison.

Ammon is charged as a repeat offender, which could increase the prison sentence by four years on each charge.

However, after not showing up to court, a bench warrant was issued for Ammon’s arrest.

According to the criminal complaint:

Officers with the Racine County Metro Drug Unit made three controlled drug purchases in March and October 2017 from the defendant with the use of a confidential informant. The first purchase was for .2 grams of heroin, the second between 0 and .1 grams and the third for .2 grams of cocaine.
