Man Caught Selling Drugs to Informant in Falls

A 21-year-old man faces up to 15 years in prison for selling to a police informant on two occasions at Pick'n Save on Appleton Avenue in Menomonee Falls.

It’s been over 10 months, but last week a 21-year-old Menomonee Falls man was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court for dealing drugs to a police informant in June.

Justin Dettmering was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of narcotics and possession of a controlled substance on Feb. 20. He faces up to eight years in prison and up to $15,500 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On June 7, Dettmering arranged a meeting with a police informant to sell one gram of cocaine and 15 oxycodone pills. The two agreed to meet in the parking lot of Pick’ n Save along Appleton Avenue and the exchange was made.

On June 13, Dettmering again met with the informant, but this time he sold Ecstasy. The exchange was once again made in the parking lot of Pick’n Save.

Maybe you should read the article.

How many of you actually know Justin? Because if you know him or cared the least bit you would talk about this somewhere less public, and if you dont know him keep the name out of your mouth. Its in the least bit concern to you. Really awesome to see the people we have living in our 'great' village of Menomonee Falls. You all make me sick.

You must be proud of Justin, seeing you are related to him. It's nothing personal. I am a firm believer of shaming criminals. You're just in denial. Just a hint. Patch is brutal. The smart don't use their real names. I trolled the hell out of your Facebook. Lovely.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 09:55 PM
You love to make people feel like they're in denial dont you? And sorry i felt i could express my opinions on a community envolved web page. And you're a freak! Whats the point of 'trolling' ,me out on Facebook? Whats even the point? And you know what, I am proud of him! Not for his mistake but for him being who he is. Yes, he missed up. I know its wrong, you know its wrong, HE knows its wrong! But he is 10x the person you will ever be. Who 'trolls' or facebook stalks a child? You have more problems to be resolved my friend.

Actually, to their defense, they appear normal. Thus are the dangers of drugs. No matter how involved one may be with them. I feel sorry for Megan, having to do deal with her brother, but in the end, if you're busted by the cops, it was for some good reason.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:02 PM
How about we check out your Facebook and look at your info and ill judge you by a picture. Sounds logical right? Niether of you know my family. What posses you to talk about someone in your own community so poorly, that you dont even know!
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) March 01, 2013 at 10:07 PM
One must understand their adversary to debate him (or her). Nothing more. Again, I'm sorry for your family's problems. May your brother get the help he needs.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:11 PM
I dont need your sympathy. Thanks.
Rebecca March 01, 2013 at 10:20 PM
None of you know the Dettmering family, or what wonderful people they are. Yes, they have had their struggles, so has my family, and I bet half of you idiots posting like you know ANYTHING have your family problems too. People make mistakes, and Justin is owning up to and taking responsibility for his, so leave him and his family alone.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:22 PM
Maybe if you raised your kids right they wouldnt be buying drugs would they? I want to live in a community where we can help fellow people get help, not just talk shit over the internet when no one is brave enough to use their own name. Grow up.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:30 PM
No matter how you raise your kids there are other kids in the community that can influence your child. We are all great kids and my parents did a great job raising us. You are in no place to.judge people you dont even know.
Rebecca March 01, 2013 at 10:31 PM
@craig and what did you do in high school? Stop acting like you live a perfect life and have never done anything illegal. This all so stupid and you guys are just adding to the stress of this whole thing.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:35 PM
THATS WHAT I AM SAYING! HES A GREAT KID! Im not trying to fight with any of you, but i wrote this because i know my brother and he has made a mistake. So let it be his buisness. Please just leave names out of your mouth because you know what? I live in this community and dont want this bad repuation you are all giving me and my family. Just please take this into consideration that you are making someone elses life and family look terrible.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:46 PM
You know what you're right, you know everything about my family and my brother. I will let you be, have fun giving your opinion on every little thing that has absolutely nothing to do with you while using a fake name because you cant fess up to your real name. Nice taking with you fellas.
Megan dettmering March 01, 2013 at 10:47 PM
Dont even say that because i know damn well you dont care. Goodbye.
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) March 01, 2013 at 10:56 PM
I'd offer you my real name but by now I have racked up a few too many death threats.

I guess you find learning experiences everywhere. Megan you have learned that there are self-righteous, arrogant bullies everywhere in life (and yes, these are the people that raise those obnoxious, arrogant idiots that we all had to endure in school and have to continue to endure through life and obviously on these very pages). Evidently they do not have very fulfilling lives or they wouldn't be spending incredible amounts of time on the Menomonee Falls Patch as they do and even trolling your webpage as well as CCAP. You will also learn that no matter what you say to these types of people you will only receive ignorant and rude answers. (It's best to leave vicious dogs alone) Because that is how they conduct themselves on every level. I have no doubt that these people have few friends and are very lonely (although they would never admit that) as they are usually extremely mouthy, obnoxious, hateful, intolerable and unbearable to be around. The only people who don't seem to recognize this is themselves. Pouncing on a young girl who is going through so much emotional pain is par for the course for people like this. You know Megan that your brother made a huge mistake that he will have to pay for. But he is going to be fine. He's a great kid (with a big heart) who made a horrible mistake and will no doubt learn from this experience. I wish you all the best.
Megan dettmering March 02, 2013 at 04:59 PM
Thank you sooo much! Its people like you i want to see more of! This means the world to me and my family! Thank you for being the person you are! All i can say is thank you!
not a perfect person March 02, 2013 at 07:54 PM
Well said JJ. I know the Dettmerings and they are very normal, VERY nice people. They are really torn up over this and cruel comments don't help. I thought we were all suppose to be trying to stop bullies!
Megan dettmering March 03, 2013 at 01:56 AM
Thank you Not a perfect person!
Livelifefast March 05, 2013 at 08:31 PM
your brother is not a great kid, or a good guy. I have known him for years and i know your family very well. Your brother has been doing this same shit for years. Bet you didnt know he would give ecstasy to young girls a couple years younger then him, and then take advangte of them. so he isnt a good person. He finally is getting what he deserves. But i agree he should read what people really say about him and learn that deep down he is a loser and maybe one day he will change. I feel sorry for you and your dad, mother and brothers. that you have the same last name as him and be related to the mistakes he has mad.
Megan dettmering March 05, 2013 at 09:20 PM
Thanks for your opinion. XOXO.
JJ August March 07, 2013 at 03:49 AM
You had knowledge of this 'livelifefast' and chose not to report it to the authorities? If he was taking advantage (and yes that's how you spell advantage) of young girls you had a moral obligation to report it. I find it rather interesting that none of these young girlS reported it either. My guess is that this is a fabricated story and that you are just being a good friend of the family. And to Justin: you are not a loser. I have known you for years and have a tremendous amount of faith in you. It's time to dig down deep, put one foot in front of the other and show the world what you're really made of.
JJ August March 07, 2013 at 04:03 AM
And to the Patch: Why don't you take this story down. This is old news. Don't be the forum where people can come and make slanderous and unsubstantiated comments about a young man who made a mistake and more importantly about his family. Please have some compassion and put it to rest.
Megan dettmering March 07, 2013 at 04:17 AM
Thank you! On behalf of my family and I thank you JJ August. I dont know how many more times I could say it!
Anonymous March 08, 2013 at 07:48 PM
I've known Justin for 8 years. He has always been a scumbag, never been a good kid.
