Barber Charged with Selling Fentanyl

(La Porte, IN) - A local barber is accused of doing more than just cutting hair for a living. Angel Duarte is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with dealing in fentanyl.


The 32-year-old La Porte man was arrested Wednesday.


According to court documents, he was caught selling $240 in fentanyl pills on two separate occasions. The exchanges occurred in late July at his barber shop, "Angel Cutz," at 2104 Ohio Street on La Porte's east side.


Authorities said the deadly, highly addictive pills came from Mexico.


Duarte could face anywhere from 3 to 16 years on the most serious of the two counts. Duarte was held in the La Porte County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
