Man allegedly sells cocaine at Waffle House

On Behalf of | Mar 18, 2016 | Federal Crimes |

According to a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a 34-year-old man from Cary, North Carolina, sold cocaine to an informant at a local Waffle House restaurant. on Dec. 5, March 5 and March 12.

The man, who has previous convictions for trafficking cocaine and cocaine possession, is being held in the Franklin County Jail for allegedly selling several ounces of the illegal drug. The special agent is part of the Raleigh-Durham Safe Streets Task Force, which is a joint effort between local, state and federal agencies. The information about the man came from members of the task force, as well as the Raleigh police.

When the informant and the man allegedly met the first time, he reportedly sold 27.7 grams of cocaine. The second time, he reportedly sold 56.7 grams of cocaine. In each instance, the man allegedly took money from the informant that agents had provided after recording the bills’ serial numbers.

On March 12, the informant told the man that he didn’t want all of the three ounces of cocaine the man allegedly had with him. Instead, he only wanted two. The man reportedly went back to his residence to weigh out two ounces of cocaine before meeting the informant at Waffle House again.

Charges for trafficking drugs have serious penalties, especially when the charges are filed in federal court. It’s important to have an attorney who is experienced in federal court developing your defense strategy, as federal court is different from state or local courts. If you have previous convictions for similar crimes, your attorney may want to get a plea bargain offer from the prosecution. However, not every plea bargain is a good choice for every defendant.
