Another alleged heroin dealer has been taken off the streets.
Thirty-one-year-old Heather Vela of Ottawa was booked Tuesday in jail for delivery of a controlled substance. She allegedly sold heroin to members of the Tri-DENT task force in October.
Vela needs $50,000 to get out of jail. She’s due back in court January 23rd. Vela’s only criminal history in La Salle County is a Conservation ticket from 2016.
