Police Snare Alleged Drug Dealer

(Michigan City, IN) - An alleged Michigan City drug dealer is scheduled to go before a judge today for his initial court hearing.


40-year-old Bobby Franklin is charged with Dealing in a Narcotic Drug, his arrest being tied to a search of a home at 3010 Cleveland Avenue.


An undisclosed amount of suspected drugs along with two firearms were recovered from the residence during the search.  According to police, the investigation was in response to complaints of possible illegal activity at the home.


Franklin is being held on $50,000 bond pending the outcome of his initial hearing at the courthouse in Michigan City.


The drug he allegedly sold has not been disclosed. Under Indiana law, though, dealing in a narcotic drug means the accused was possibly involved in the sale of larger quantities of heroin.


Franklin could face anywhere from a 10-to-30 year sentence on the Level 2 Felony charge.
