LaPorte man charged with dealing heroin, cocaine, meth and more


A LaPorte man was charged with dealing heroin, cocaine, meth and marijuana after a warrant search of a Planett Street house and a car Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018.

The LaPorte County Drug Task Force said Casey P. Kindig, 36, of LaPorte, faces charges in LaPorte Circuit Court of Dealing Heroin, Level 2 Felony; Dealing Cocaine, Level 2 Felony; Dealing Methamphetamine, Level 2 Felony; and Dealing Marijuana, Level 6 Felony.

Police seized 143 grams of methamphetamine, 16 grams of heroin, 49 grams of cocaine, 48 grams of ecstasy, 7.5 pounds of marijuana, two handguns, and approximately $8,600 in cash during the search.

Kindig was being held at LaPorte County Jail without bond. At the time of his arrest, he was out on bond for an unrelated case.

The task force acted after receiving tips from the public about possible drug activity in the 400 block of Planett Street.

“This is another example of community partnership with the LaPorte County Drug Task Force and local law enforcement to remove alleged narcotics dealers from our community,” a task force press release stated. The task force encourages citizens to report tips through social media pages of your local law enforcement agencies, and by using the crime tip hotline, 219-873-1488.

The La Porte County Drug Task Force was assisted in this investigation by the LaPorte County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, LaPorte Circuit Court, LaPorte Police Department – Afternoon Patrol Shift, and the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department – Afternoon Patrol Shift.

    Great Job getting him offf the streets!!!!!!!!! I do feel for his family, he has no idea what he has put them through. A least they still get to visit and speak to him through the glass. I will never be able to speak or see my brother again due to this trash he put on the streets.
