From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police made a drug arrest early Friday after being called to a convenience store in the overnight hours.
The Huntingburg Police Department was called to Huck’s, 601 N. Main St., at 11:55 p.m. Thursday when it was reported a man had dropped guns into trash cans.
Officers made contact with James J. Langley, 40, Bloomington, and found he had dropped one Airsoft pistol in a trash can near drink machines and another in a trash can behind a counter.
Langley was detained and reportedly stated he put the Airsoft guns — they were recovered — in trash bins because he did not want them in his bags due to being a convicted felon.
During a subsequent search, police found Langley in possession of a plastic spoon with a white cotton substance on it as well as white power residue that field tested positive as heroin.
Authorities booked Langley into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:17 a.m. Friday on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of possession of a narcotic drug and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.
Police said Langley was also found to be wanted on a failure-to-appear warrant out of Lawrence County related to an identity deception case.
