A 30 year old LaPorte dentist arrested Monday evening for possession of heroin with intent to distribute has been formally charged today. Portage Police report they pulled over Benjamin Porter's vehicle for speeding, after an officer noticed his vehicle weaving through eastbound traffic on I-80, just west of the Portage Toll barrier. Police say Porter reportedly admitted to possessing heroin in his vehicle, after he was informed an officer was en-route with a canine to check his vehicle, after initially denying a search of his vehicle. Porter is scheduled to appear in Porter Superior Court on the two felony charges Friday.
