NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. (WOWO): A Cromwell man was arrested Thursday while attending his daughter’s sporting event.

33-year-old Scott Allen Baldwin was arrested on preliminary charges of dealing meth within 500 feet of a park, possession of a precursor, possession of meth and possession of a handgun.

On June 23, confidential informants contacted the Warsaw Police Department and said they could purchase meth from Baldwin in exchange for $100 and a box of pseudoephedrine, police say. An officer met with the informants and supplied them with audio recording device to monitor conversations with Baldwin.

The informants met with Baldwin at the North Webster baseball diamonds where his daughter was playing a game. They provided him with $100 of the WPD’s money. Baldwin was allegedly heard explaining there was 1.1 grams of meth provided. Baldwin shook hands with the informants and they parted ways.

The informants then met with Nethaway and provided a clear plastic bag containing a white powdery substance that tested positive for meth.

Baldwin was approached by police shortly after. A K9 partner was brought in and discovered the presence of illegal drugs in Baldwin’s vehicle. Police say they also located a 9mm handgun.

This is Baldwin’s second arrest for dealing and possessing meth this year.
