(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte woman pulled over for a traffic violation was discovered to be an alleged heroin dealer.
Kellyann Glancy, 46, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Dealing in Cocaine or a Narcotic Drug. She could face a sentence of anywhere from 10 to 30 years if convicted.
According to court documents, she was stopped July 29th by a La Porte County Sheriff’s Deputy for failing to use a turn signal while changing lanes on Indiana 2 east of Rolling Prairie. Police said she became hysterical and started crying while stating, “come on, man. I just need a break, please.” The arresting officer felt her reaction was odd because he had already told her she was receiving just a warning ticket for the traffic violation. The officer also felt it was strange that she walked and stood with both of her knees clenched.
Twenty-six grams of heroin inside a plastic bag were allegedly discovered during a strip search at the La Porte County Jail.
