RACINE — In June 2018, a 22-year-old woman reportedly was selling cocaine out of her home in Racine County.

Stephanie Gonzales was charged Tuesday with eight total counts, including three counts of possession with intent to sell near a school, one count of maintaining a drug trafficking place, and four counts of bail jumping, or failing to comply with terms of her bond.

On June 18, 21 and 25, officers from the Racine Metro Drug Unit made purchases from Gonzales at her residence, in the 1300 block of Chatham Street in Racine.

Her residence is 329 feet from Jane's Elementary School and 917 feet from Kids Cove Playground.

Gonzales has a pending prosecution for possession of cocaine, THC and a retail theft for which she was released on bond, until she was found allegedly selling drugs out of her home.
