La Porte, Indiana – Juan Aquino, a 52-year-old man from New Jersey, was arrested in La Porte County, Indiana, for allegedly dealing cocaine. 

According to the LaPorte County Police, Aquino was apprehended with nearly 10 pounds of cocaine during a traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road. The arrest occurred on Wednesday when he was observed tailgating another vehicle. The officer noted Aquino’s suspicious behavior, including the presence of laundry sheets and a Bible in his vehicle. 

Authorities suggest that laundry sheets are commonly used to mask the scent of drugs, while Bibles might be used to mislead police. Aquino is currently held in the La Porte County Jail on cocaine dealing charges.
