Sussex Man Pinched in Milwaukee Drug Sting

Suspect was buying morphine from a Mequon man in the parking lot of a north side pharmacy, complaint alleges.

A Sussex man and Mequon man are both facing charges after police said they were caught partaking in a drug deal in the parking lot of a Milwaukee pharmacy.

Jacob James Kirchberger, 34, of Sussex, was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Saturday with one count of possession of a narcotic drug, while Jeffrey Allen Stock, 54, of Mequon, was charged with one count of delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted, Kirchberger faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines, and Stock faces up to 15 years in prison and $50,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

An undercover Milwaukee police officer was surveying the parking lot of a pharmacy in the 6700 block of West Hampton Avenue, when he spotted Kirchberger pull into the parking lot in a white Mercury and park. Kirchberger didn’t get out of the vehicle, but appeared to be looking for someone.

The area is know for a large amount of drug sales, so the officer continued to watch Kirchberger, then saw Stock pull into the parking lot in a red Audi and park next to Kirchberger. Stock got out of the car, leaned in through the passenger side window of Kirchberger’s vehicle, then completed a transaction. The two were then approached by another Milwaukee police officer.

Officers found six morphine pills in Kirchberger’s cup holder and then searched Stock, who had a bottle with 55 Oxycodone pills and two morphine pills inside. Stock was also carrying $100 in his pocket.

Both men are currently free on signature bond while awaiting trial.
