Bedford Man Pleads Not Guilty To Dealing Drugs

Last updated on Monday, December 19, 2016

(BEDFORD) - A Bedford man was arrested last week after he sold meth to a confidential informant.

Indiana State Police arrested 29-year-old Casey Staggs of Bedford on a warrant for dealing meth and a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of meth and a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court II probable cause affidavit, in September a confidential informant told a Bedford Police officer that Staggs was selling morphine. The informant then met with Staffs and purchased 16 morphine pills from him. The informant met with Staggs again and then purchased 0.36 grams of meth from him.

The affidavit states that during one of the drug deals Staggs had a child in the car when he met with the informant.

Staggs plead not guilty to the crimes and is being represented by Public Defender Jim Spangler. A pretrial is scheduled for February 2 at 9 a.m.

Staggs is being held in the Lawrence County Jail because he was on probation at the time of these charges for a July 2015 battery. In that case, Staggs plead guilty to punching a woman in the face, breaking her nose.
