The following individual has been arrested stemming from investigations conducted by the Drug Task Force. 

 

On January 29th, 2018, Alain Kiiwon Powell Sr, was arrested for two counts of Dealing Methamphetamine, and two counts of Possession of Methamphetamine.  Powell Sr. sold methamphetamine to a Confidential Informant and an Undercover Detective on several occasions in 2017.  Powell Sr, was located in Lafayette at a local apartment complex when he was arrested on this warrant.  Powell Sr was transported to the Tippecanoe County Jail.
