Clevelander accused of selling crack


MEDINA — A Cleveland man is accused of selling crack cocaine to an undercover agent from the Medina County Drug Task Force.

Raymel G. King, 25, was arrested at about 7 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of the Clark gas station at 427 N. Court St., according to Gary Hubbard, drug task force director.

King was charged with trafficking in cocaine, a third-degree felony.

Hubbard said that when police searched King, they found several counterfeit $50 bills. Medina police, along with the task force, will be investigating where the $50 bills came from.

Hubbard said King told police he lived on the streets but recently had been staying at Union Square Apartments in Medina.

He was taken to the Medina County Jail, where records list King’s address as 3624 E. 103rd St., Cleveland. Bond was set at 10 percent of $60,000.

According to police, King has a history of drug offenses.
