— In addition to fighting the heroin and cocaine trade, Walworth County deputies are going undercover to fight another front in the war on drugs: Viagra dealers.

David L. Vos, 55, of 617 Haskins St., Lake Geneva, is charged with three counts of felony delivery of prescription drugs stemming from an undercover operation in which a deputy bought Viagra or its generic counterpart three times.


Vos remains free on a $3,000 signature bond after his initial appearance Friday in Walworth County Court. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.


According to the criminal complaint, an undercover Walworth County sheriff’s deputy met with a man July 26, 2007, at a home in Krueger Road in Geneva Township to buy Viagra.


The deputy gave the man $80 in exchange for Viagra pills, the prescription information and the doctor’s name, according to the criminal complaint.


The deputy met with the man a second time Sept. 17, 2007, to buy more Viagra, according to the criminal complaint, but the man couldn’t get the drug because he had given his prescription to the deputy.


Instead, the man sold the deputy 12 pills from his prescription for Vardenafil, a generic version of Viagra, for $80, according to the criminal complaint.


The deputy met with the man a third time Nov. 30, 2007, at a gas station in Lake Geneva and bought eight pills of Viagra for $80, according to the criminal complaint.


The man also gave the deputy additional prescription information, according to the criminal complaint.


Vos later was charged with delivering prescription drugs.


He will have a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10.
