Within 24 hours, three different men were arrested in Princeton for allegedly dealing drugs.

On Wednesday afternoon officers say they bought heroin from 22-year-old Devin Hepner of Bureau.  He was arrested and jailed for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

Then just before noon Thursday, officers say they bought heroin from 24-year-old Stanley Mercer of Tiskilwa.  He was also arrested and jailed for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

About a half hour after that bust, police arrested 44-year-old Aaron Howe at his Princeton home on a warrant for dealing meth.  When he was arrested, officers say Howe had meth with him so he was handed a new charge of possession of meth.  He was hauled off to the Bureau County Jail.
