JUNEAU — A 39-year-old Reeseville man will spend more than six years in prison following a law enforcement investigation that took $35,000 worth of cocaine off of the streets.

A Reeseville man pleaded guilty to cocaine-related charges on Tuesday.
Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Martin De Vries sentenced Adamemares on Monday to six years and five months of initial incarceration with a 12-year extended sentence. He must pay fines and court costs and forfeits $9,600 of drug money to the Jefferson Drug Task Force. He shall not use, possess, control any controlled substances without a valid prescription or drug paraphernalia, nor be in the presence of anyone who does. He must not possess firearms.
Cocaine valued at up to $35,000 was seized from a Dodge County residence Thursday, with a suspect being arrested.
The Dodge County Drug Task Force along with the Jefferson County Drug Task Force and the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation conducted a drug investigation over several months that resulted in a search warrant being executed at a residence in the town of Lowell on March 1
