Already....La Porte's new mayor played a role in the arrest of a suspected drug dealer.

The apprehension was made at Ohio and Norton streets.

Tom Dermody and several officers talked to residents in that neighborhood the day

after he took office.

They revealed a lot of vehicle and foot traffic in and out of the home.

Assistant Police Chief Nate Thode says the arrest was made that same day.

Thode says suspected drug activity was occurring there for the past year or so.

But...nobody was supposed to be living there.

The landlord had no knowledge anyone was staying there......

Thode says the name of the suspect is not being released right now because the investigation

is ongoing and could bring additional charges.
