Dennis Miles Hale, 35, is accused of selling crack cocaine.
A Gainesville man was arrested Thursday after police said he sold crack cocaine to an undercover informant at least three times.
Dennis Miles Hale, 35, sold crack cocaine to a Gainesville-Alachua County Drug Task Force informant on June. 6, June 27 and Aug. 8, according to several sworn complaints filed by the Gainesville Police Department.
On June 6, the informant got into Hale's white Ford Ranger pickup truck at a negotiated location on Northwest 13th Street and purchased .71 grams of cocaine for $60, an affidavit said.
On June 27, Hale told the informant to meet him at his apartment at 2016 NW Fourth St., police said. The informant told police he or she had previously purchased crack cocaine from Hale at his apartment.
The informant bought 2.28 grams for $80, according to police.
On Aug. 8, the informant got into Hale's 2017 Nissan Maxima on Northeast 16th Avenue and purchased .83 grams of crack cocaine for $80. The complaint said the transaction happened less than 1,000 feet from Howard Bishop Middle School and Highlands Presbyterian Church.
Hale was arrested Thursday on a warrant for four counts of possessing property used for drug trafficking, three counts of selling cocaine, three counts of possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, three counts of using a two-way communication device to commit a felony, and one count each of cocaine trafficking, drug equipment possession and possession of a gun by a felon.
He was booked into the Alachua County jail Thursday and is being held in lieu of a $667,000 bond.
