A 21-year-old Milwaukee man ran from Greenfield police when he and a friend were pulled over with nearly 70 Oxycodone pills and 50 grams of marijuana in the car, police say.
Dustin Orlinski of Milwaukee was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court last week with second offense possession of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, possession of narcotic drugs and resisting and obstructing a police officer.
If convicted, Orlinski faces a maximum of 7 years and 9 months of imprisonment, $30,000 in fines or both.
According to court documents, Greenfield police were called Ken's Shell, 5909 S. 27th St., Aug. 8, to check on two men in a car who has been sitting at, but not using, the gas pumps. When police arrived, Orlinski provided a false name to the officer, according to the criminal complaint.
When police were given permission to search the vehicle and removed Orlinski, he took off running. Police caught him a few blocks away.
The police search revealed 68 Oxycodone pills of various strengths and four bags of THC weighing a total of 49.5 grams. Orlinski told police the drugs were his and that before they arrived, he had been weighing out marijuana so that he and his friend knew how much they were about to smoke.
