The La Porte County Drug Task Force announced the arrest of two individuals for allegedly trafficking controlled substances within The La Porte County Jail. The investigation began in April 2017, when jail staff intercepted a controlled substance being mailed into The La Porte County Jail. Captain Derek Allen, the jail commander requested the assistance of The LCDTF in investigating the case. Sgt. Andy Hynek was assigned the investigation, where he conducted interviews, and recovered evidence of the trafficking. The evidence obtained by Sgt. Hynek throughout this lengthy investigation was turned over to The La Porte County Prosecutors Office, where it was presented to Judge Tom Alevizos. Probable cause was found to arrest 49 year old Joveda Wood of La Porte for Trafficking with an Inmate Level 5 Felony (3 counts), and 29 year old Joshua Caudill of Michigan City for Trafficking Level 5 Felony.
