(Michigan City, IN) - A suspected bigger fish in the Michigan City drug world has been reeled in.
Damont Williams, 29, has been charged in La Porte Superior Court 1 with two counts of dealing in cocaine or a narcotic drug. According to court documents, the allegations stem from his alleged activities early in 2021.
Police said he was caught selling $240 of an off-white/tan powder in the 1900 block of East Michigan Boulevard and $1,200 of the same colored powder near his residence on Kentucky Street. Initially, police believed heroin was sold but the substances, weighing a combined 25 grams, tested positive for fentanyl or methamphetamine, court records disclosed.
Williams was arrested November 22nd and was being held in the La Porte County Jail on a $50,000 bond. He could face anywhere from a 10 to 30-year sentence on the most serious of the counts.
