A Buffalo man is accused of selling crack to undercover operatives with the Union County Sheriff's Office on two different occasions.
Kier Murray Jennings, 30, of 316 Tight Circle, was charged Monday with two counts of distribution of crack and two counts of distribution of crack within one-half mile of a school or park.
The first sale occurred on April 20. A report said Lt. John Sherfield provided an operative with $20 and sent him to Duncan Avenue where he met Jennings in the roadway and purchased crack.
Monday, Sherfield and Investigator Mickey Parker with the Union Public Safety Department provided $30 to an operative and sent him to Tight Circle where he bought crack cocaine from Jennings, who was sitting in a gray vehicle.
When officers arrested Jennings, they seized $390 from him, including the $30 used to buy the crack.
Both drug sales occurred within one-half mile of the Lukesville Park.
A 20-year-old Union man told deputies Tuesday that someone tried to rob him while he was riding his moped on Perrin Avenue.
The victim told Deputy Wendy Childers he saw two men standing near the yield sign at Sims Drive. He thought he knew one of them and stopped. One of the men, a black man wearing a white hooded jacket with a skull on the front, pulled a pistol and said, “Give me everything you've got or I will shoot you.” The victim said he attempted to get way but wrecked his moped. The man with the gun ran toward him and put the gun in his face. A truck pulled up and the subjects ran.
The man with the gun was wearing a multi-colored hooded jacket. The victim said he stood at the yield sign and didn't move or say anything.
An investigation is continuing. The man had no injuries. The moped wrecked in a grassy area and was not damaged.
The sheriff's office is investigating a burglary on 215 Meadow Road in which a quantity of items was taken.
A report said all of the furniture and appliances were taken from the house, along with a riding mower and televisions. Items were emptied from drawers and shelves and thrown around the house. The victim making the report told Sgt. Jimmy Johnson the home had belonged to her deceased parents.
The value of the items taken had not been determined at the time of the report. The victim planned to take a further inventory.
