TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – An Attica man will spend more than two decades behind bars after dealing heroin at a Lafayette campground.

In January 2013, officers were called to the AOK Campground in Lafayette for a report of a suspicious vehicle. According to court documents, officers found 18 grams of heroin and a syringe on 34 year old Stuart Bookwalter.

Bookwalter admitted he was bringing it back from Chicago. He was convicted in November on four charges, including dealing heroin. He also admitted to a charge of being a habitual substance offender.

Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington said Bookwalter was sentenced to 23 years in prison.
