State police arrest Bloomington man on charges of dealing heroin

An investigation by the Indiana State Police's drug enforcement unit led to the arrest of a Bloomington resident Tuesday afternoon.

Police observed Jacob D. Tarter, 25, parked by Ferguson Dog Park on Stone Mill Road after 2 p.m. in the process of what they said appeared to be a drug transaction, according to an ISP release. Tarter was arrested on four charges, the most serious being dealing heroin, in addition to three outstanding felony warrants.

Police said they found approximately 9 grams of heroin and 1 gram of cocaine in Tarter's possession.

Tarter has multiple firearm, drug and domestic violence-related cases pending in Monroe County, according to online court records.
