Charges have been filed against an Alton man for allegedly selling drugs from his home in the Milton area. 37 year old Jamil R. Cole of the 3800 block of Western Avenue, is charged with felony possession of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school. His home is near St. Mary’s Middle School on Milton Road.
An agent from St. Louis County tipped off Alton Police about the possible drug sales last fall. Alton Police set up a covert buy last October, with other sales taking place in November and December in Missouri between Cole and a police informant. Another sale was to have taken place on February 11, but Cole was stopped by Alton Police near Hillcrest and Milton Road and was allegedly in possession of cocaine. Cole is being held on a $100,000 bond.
