Charges in Good-Sized Heroin Bust

(La Porte, IN) - A South Bend man is accused of being a heroin dealer in La Porte County.


19-year old Michael Andrews is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Level 2 felony Dealing in a Narcotic Drug and Possession of Marijuana. Just over three months ago, police were called to a report of a man and woman fighting outside Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. Upon arrival, Andrews explained he and the female were playing a game that involved throwing drinks at each other.


Police said there was a liquid on the hood of the vehicle they occupied in the parking lot. According to court documents, an odor of marijuana led to a search, and a large amount of heroin weighing over 11 grams was recovered from the vehicle. A small amount of marijuana was also allegedly seized.


Andrews was being held on a $50,000 bond.
