DADE CITY - Undercover agents from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office bought nearly half a pound of crystal methamphetamine from a dealer operating at the Circle K on 21st St., a report said.

In separate transactions on Aug. 18 and Sept. 13, Jose Angel Perez Jr., 26, of 37450 Coleman Ave, Dade City, sold the drugs for a total of $7,500 in cash, the report said.

He was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of trafficking in methamphetamine. He was held without bail Saturday at the Land O'Lakes jail, awaiting charges from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
