A 24-year old woman has now been charged in an Oct. 5 drug raid at the Wind Lake home she shares with her brother, who was charged previously.

According to the criminal complaint filed in Racine County Circuit Court:

• Nedra L. Brown, was present at the home, 26644 Long Lake Road, Wind Lake, when Racine County drug agents executed a “knock and announce” search warrant Oct. 5.

In her bedroom, agents reportedly found drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana that she admitted belonged to her.

She is charged as a repeat offender with felony possession of Tetrahydrocannabinols (THC, the active chemical in marijuana) and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

If convicted of all charges, she faces a maximum of 9 years, 7 months in prison; $10,500 in fines; or both.

If convicted of both felonies, Brown faces 25 years in prison, $50,000 in fines, or both.
