(Michigan City, IN) - Another suspected meth dealer in La Porte County is facing potential time in prison. Mark Thomas, 34, was allegedly caught selling over two grams of the drug in Michigan City. Police said the $140 exchange occurred in a parking lot along U.S. 421 just south of U.S. 20.
According to court documents, the purchase was set up after the buyer contacted Thomas on Facebook Messenger and they agreed to meet a short time later. Authorities said Thomas used to live in Three Oaks but now resides in South Bend.
Thomas posted a $2,000 cash bond about a week after his November 30 arrest. He could face anywhere from a 2 to 12-year sentence on Level 4 felony dealing in methamphetamine.
