A 36-year-old man was arrested and charged with distributing crack cocaine to to police informants. The man allegedly sold the informants the illegal substance on four separate occasions.

The man sold upwards of a gram to the informants three separate times, and under a gram the last time. One of the drug deals took place in close proximity to a church, which adds to the seriousness of the penalties if the man is convicted. Upon arrest, police searched his motel room, as well as his vehicle, but did not find additional drug paraphernalia.

The man is currently on parole for a 2000 drug conviction. His bond was set at $250,000, and he was ordered by a judge to return to court in November to face the charges against him.
