Lebanon man faces federal drug charges
Mar 14, 2013 4:00 pm
A Lebanon man faces federal drug charges, according to police Chief Scott Bowen.
Federal drug enforcement agents and members of the Lebanon police Narcotics Unit arrested Roberto Manier, 50, on a three-count federal indictment Friday.
The indictment stems from a nearly yearlong Lebanon police Narcotics Unit investigation.
Bowen said Manier is accused of selling narcotics near Inman Court.
Manier, who has six previous cocaine-related convictions since January 1990 in Wilson County, was on federal supervised released from a 2006 DEA and LPD drug conspiracy case.
Police charged Manier with the sale of marijuana and two counts for the sale of cocaine, and he was arraigned Monday in front of a U.S. magistrate.
The marijuana charge carries a sentence of up to five years in prison, and the cocaine charges carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
Manier’s detention hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
