TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Another arrest made after an investigation by the Tippecanoe Drug Task Force has led to charges against a Perrysville, Indiana man.

Court documents say that on Sept. 13, police received a call from 28-year-old Shannon Lee Vanhoosier who was known to have been involved with selling methamphetamine.

Police made arrangements with Vanhoosier to make an undercover buy.

Vanhooiser was met in West Point by a detective who used recorded money to make a purchase yielding approximately 1.2 grams of methamphetamine.

On Sept. 15, a second purchase with Vanhoosier was arranged by police to take place at the same location as the first. Police were able to obtain about 3.3 grams of methamphetamine.

Vanhoosier is charged with two counts of dealing methamphetamine and two counts of possession methamphetamine.
