Drugs Move Couple from Home to Jail

(Michigan City, IN) - A Michigan City woman is charged with dealing methamphetamine. Sarah Williams, 47, was being held in the La Porte County Jail on $2,000 bond following her arrest last week.


According to court documents, she was caught in October selling a small amount of methamphetamine from her residence at 6th and Spring streets.  The investigation shows Williams also claimed to be selling pressed fentanyl pills.


She could face anywhere from a 2-to-12 year sentence on each of three Level 4 Felony counts.


Authorities said one of the counts involves Williams carrying out the exchange while holding a small child, something that places a child at risk of having contact with narcotics during a transaction.


According to police, Williams was living there with 28-year-old Taige Canciglia.  He’s currently in the county jail on charges of unlawful possession of a syringe and possession of paraphernalia.


The investigation shows Canciglia may have helped Williams with the sale of drugs from their residence. 


Williams, who used to operate a higher end clothing store in downtown New Buffalo, has a history of arrests for crimes like Possession of Heroin and Theft. Canciglia in turn also has a history of arrests related to drugs and other crimes like Battery, court records disclosed.
