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.
