A traffic stop by Indiana State Trooper Zarek Finely led to the arrest of an Angola man.
Reports from the Indiana State Police indicate that Donnie Henderson, age 43 of Angola, IN was incarcerated in the Lagrange County Jail to face preliminary felony charges for dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and maintaining a common nuisance. He also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and operating a motor vehicle without financial responsibility.
Trooper Finely initiated a traffic stop on a 1992 Ford Ranger on westbound I-80 near the 120.5 mile marker, for a traffic infraction. The Ford was allegedly driven by Henderson. While Finely was speaking to Henderson he purportedly noticed indicators that criminal activity might be afoot.
During a subsequent search of the Ford, officers allegedly found 25 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, digital scales, and other drug paraphernalia. Further investigation revealed that Henderson was allegedly driving with a suspended license and no insurance.
Note: All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
