Brewton police said they used an undercover investigation to nab what they called a “street level dealer” Tuesday.

Lavarius Bell, 32, of Brewton was arrested by Brewton Police Department narcotics agents on charges of two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance; two counts of unlawful posession of a controled substance; and unlawful possession of marijuana.

“Agents conducted an investigation and were able to purchase crack cocaine from Bell on separate occasions,” Lt. Brock Holt said.
