A Pleasant Prairie woman who allegedly stabbed her boyfriend, leading police to discover a drug-dealing operation, has been charged with five felonies.
Sydney Bebo, 24, has been in Kenosha County Jail on a probation hold since Jan. 13 when she brought her boyfriend Joey Del Real to a hospital with a minor stab wound.
The incident prompted an investigation that led Pleasant Prairie Police to serve a search warrant on the couple’s home in the 8600 block of Old Green Bay Road.
While police were waiting for the warrant to arrive, Del Real — who had left the hospital wearing a hospital gown and socks — attempted to sneak into the house and was arrested.
Inside the house, police found what a prosecutor characterized as “a massive amount of drugs,” including 350 grams of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of about $28,000 along with nearly 35 pounds of marijuana, 20 grams of cocaine and a backpack containing $78,000 in cash.
Del Real was charged Jan. 22 with a series of drug-related felonies and for being a felon in possession of firearms.
Bebo provided a different address than the Old Green Bay Road home.
However, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday, investigators got a copy of a lease for the Pleasant Prairie home and found both Del Real and Bebo were listed as tenants.
Police also reviewed Bebo’s cellphone records and found “numerous conversations, with multiple people, that involved discussions about the price, sale and distribution of both bud marijuana and vape THC cartridges,” the complaint states.
Bebo was charged with possession with intent to deliver THC, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
She was also charged with neglecting a child as her child, a toddler, lived in the home.
At the the time of the incident, Bebo was on probation for a June 2018 conviction for knowingly operating a vehicle with a suspended license causing death.
That conviction was related to the January 2018 death of a 58-year-old Pleasant Prairie man who was struck and killed while “unsafely crossing” the road in the 3200 block of 60th Street.
Although Bebo was not found to be at fault in that fatal crash, she was charged because she was driving without a valid license.
She is scheduled to make her initial court appearance for the new charges Feb. 12.
