On February 25th, the Lafayette Street Crimes Unit arrested Paul Godina (27 years old, of Lafayette) on a warrant for Dealing Heroin. The subject was located in the 2100-block of South St. The incident stemmed from an extensive Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force investigation into the distribution of heroin within Lafayette. Paul Godina was transported to the Tippecanoe County Jail and released to their custody.
The City of Lafayette and the Lafayette Police Department will continue to diligently investigate these types of incidents in conjunction with the initiatives outlined by Mayor Roswarski last year. The police department would ask anyone that knows of current drug activity to report this information to the Lafayette Police Department (807-1200), We-Tip Hotline (800-78-CRIME), or the Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force Tip Line (807-1670).
