ANGOLA — An Angola teen was arraigned in a Steuben County courtroom following an arrest for dealing fentanyl and multiple other charges.

Reports indicate Dale M. Hug, age 18 of Angola, was stopped on the 7500 block of Metz Road for driving 30 mph over the posted speed limit on Tuesday night just after 8 p.m.

Hug was also not wearing his seat belt when he was pulled over.

During the stop by a Sheriff’s Deputy and a K-9 officer discovered for drugs, Hug’s vehicle was searched and approximately 50 blue pills with the marking M-30 were found, along with methamphetamine, marijuana and a handgun.

Authorities say the blue pills are similar to those that have been showing up in recent arrests in Noble County.

The handgun Hug was in possession of was a Glock 9-mm, which reportedly had the serial numbers filed off.

Hug was arrested on multiple charges, including Level 3 felony dealing in a narcotic drug. He is facing 3-16 years in prison for the Level 3 felony alone.

In addition, Hug was also charged with three other counts of Level 3 felonies for charges of dealing narcotics, possession of methamphetamine and having a gun with altered numbers; and Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana. With the additional felonies, he’s looking at roughly 34 years in prison.

During his arraignment by Magistrate James Burns Hug’s bail was set at $25,000.
