Milwaukee County District Attorney Announces Prosecution of Cocaine and Heroin Ring

The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has initiated prosecutions against seven members of a group allegedly responsible for distributing large quantities and heroin and cocaine throughout the Milwaukee area.

Francisco Chavez-Reynoso was recently arrested at his home in Green Bay and is charged with Conspiracy to Deliver Cocaine and Heroin. The criminal complaint against Chavez-Reynoso alleges that he used a house at 1800 S. Layton Boulevard to sell large quantities of cocaine and heroin. Chavez-Reynoso allegedly reported that his drug source is located in Chicago. Others associated and charged for their part in this drug conspiracy include: Adam Villodas, Tudi Montejano, Wally Flores, Claudia Sandoval, Luis Sandoval and Jesse Voit. Irving Pedroza is charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Search warrants executed in this matter resulted in the seizure of multiple kilograms of cocaine, large quantities of heroin, over $100,000 cash, digital scales commonly used for measuring quantities of drugs, four firearms and multiple rounds of ammunition. The criminal complaints in these matters allege that the participants in this conspiracy reported spending tens of thousands of dollars at a time to purchase large quantities of cocaine and heroin. One defendant allegedly revealed that he sold over 75 kilograms of cocaine between February and November of 2014.

The long-term investigation of this drug ring was led by the West Allis Police Department and supported by law enforcement members of the Milwaukee High Intensity Drug Task Force (HIDTA), the local, state and federal task force investigating and prosecuting large scale drug organizations.

Said Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm: “These cases once again demonstrate the value of the collaborative work constantly demonstrated by law enforcement professionals in this community. Investigations and prosecutions that reach the primary offenders distributing large amounts of potentially deadly drugs into our community can and do have a meaningful impact on the neighborhoods in which we live.”

The criminal complaints are attached to this release. By law, all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Defendant Adam J. Villodas (DOB 10/22/86) has a warrant for his arrest from this matter. His photograph is attached to this release. Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact law enforcement immediately.
