Twelve and 1/2 years behind bars is the sentence for a Lafayette man convicted of conspiring to sell drugs.

During a five month long sting operation, law enforcement says that 35-year-old Jacob Glen Collett conspired to sell a variety of drugs.

Collett was found in possession of the following:

  • 56 tables of Fentanyl
  • 4.01 grams of MDMA
  • 38.9 grams of Heroin
  • 16 and 1/2 grams of cocaine
  • 52.3 grams of a mixture containing THC
  • 222 doses of LSD
  • 705.2 grams of methamphetamine

Multiple drug enforcement agencies cooperated to bring the arrest to fruition including the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The U.S. Attorney's Office also reports that Collett was in possession of a handgun and ammunition in violation of an earlier charge.
