TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Another person has been arrested and charged in the ongoing series of investigations by the Tippecanoe Drug Task Force. 

Court documents say that on May 9 and 10, police arranged to purchase heroin from 24-year-old Donieal Lamar Hall of Lafayette.

On both dates, an undercover detective met with Hall in the Romney Meadows area and made transactions using recorded money. A total 2.13 grams of heroin was acquired between the two purchases.

On May 17, the detective met with Hall again at the Spring Gardens apartment complex and made another purchase. The transaction yielded just over a gram of heroin.

Hall was observed driving a vehicle before meeting with the detective, however, his driving status had been suspended for life as a result of a prior conviction.

The arrest led to Hall being charged with three counts of dealing a narcotic drug, three counts of possession of a narcotic drug, and operating a motor vehicle after forfeiture of license for life.
