Beaver Dam Woman Going To Prison For Housing Crack Dealer

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam woman was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday for aiding in a drug trafficking operation. In March, Lynda Gadzinski pled guilty to felony counts of Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place, Manufacture and Deliver Cocaine and Bail Jumping. In February of 2017, Beaver Dam police officers executed a search warrant at Gadzinski’s residence where they had reason to believe that the house was used for drug trafficking. The 54-year-old Gadzinski was located inside and informed officers that she had shoved crack inside her ears in an attempt to hide it. Gadzinski was taken to the hospital to have the crack removed. Once there, officers tested the substance which was positively identified as cocaine. Gadzinski told investigators that she has a crack addiction and would receive the drug for free from a dealer in exchange for a place to stay and sell the drug. In addition to prison Gadzinski will be placed on probation for five years.
