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.

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.

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.

I've known Justin for 8 years. He has always been a scumbag, never been a good kid.
