LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Charges have been filed against two people following investigations conducted by the Tippecanoe Drug Task Force.
Court documents state that on Nov. 17, 2015, an undercover officer arranged to purchase some methamphetamine from Kimberly Hart, 33, of West Lafayette. Her associate, Allen Gordon Faurote, 32, also of West Lafayette, agreed to drive the officer to a business on Veterans Memorial Parkway to meet Hart.
Once there, Hart joined the officer and Faurote and directed them to drive to an apartment at Bridgewater Circle where they parked.
Hart texted her supplier from the vehicle and once a response was received, the officer gave her recorded money with which to buy the drugs.
Hart entered the apartment and exited within a few minutes with a plastic bag containing what appeared to be meth.
Once the transaction was completed and he had dropped off Hart and Faroute, he field-tested the contents of the bag which proved to be methamphetamine, weighing 1.6 grams.
On Nov. 18, the undercover officer arranged a second purchase from Hart and was told to return to the same Bridgewater apartment as the day before.
Hart was not able to be present to make the exchange, so the officer was invited into the apartment to complete the transaction.
There, he was patted down by 26-year-old Alexa Montenaro, of Lafayette to make sure he wasn't wired while a male, 27-year-old Alejandro Briar Saucedo, of Rensselaer, went off into a bedroom to obtain the meth.
In exchange for the recorded money, the officer received a baggie containing a substance which field-tested positive for meth. 2.5 grams was obtained in the purchase.
On Oct. 5, 2017, both Hart and Faroute were charged with conspiracy to commit dealing in methamphetamine. Faroute was additionally charged with possession of methamphetamine, and dealing in methamphetamine.
