A Medina man was sentenced to 14 years in prison on Friday for selling cocaine and having a firearm on hand to help his sales.

From September 2010 to November 2011, Flores-Olague sold cocaine to an undercover officer seven different times. He distributed the cocaine from his home.

On Nov. 17 officers executed a search warrant on Flores-Olague’s home and recovered nine grams of cocaine, a handgun, a scale and $3,820 in the master bedroom. Hidden in the kitchen ceiling tiles, officers recovered three handguns, ammunition and $49,800.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Flores-Olague told police he’s been selling cocaine for three years, approximately one ounce each week.
