GREENFIELD — A Greenfield man is in jail after police accused him of selling cocaine to one of the department’s confidential informants, according to court documents.

Brandon Humphries, 22, 1340 Greenhill Road, Greenfield, now faces a series of felony counts accusing him of dealing drugs. He’s being held in the Hancock County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond, records show.

Police say they used a confidential informant to buy drugs from Humphries on two separate occasions in November, according to court documents.

The informant was wearing a recording device that captured video and audio during both exchanges, police said.

During the two meetings, Humphries took the informant’s money and handed over packages of cocaine, according to court documents. Both weighed between between 1 and 5 grams, documents state.

The informant also gave police records of messages exchanged with Humphries, which included discussions about drugs, according to court documents.

Humphries faces three felony counts: one Level 4 felony count of dealing in cocaine; one Level 5 felony count of corrupt business influence; one Level 6 felony count of possession of cocaine.

Level 4 felony counts carry penalties of two to 12 years; Level 5 felony counts carry penalties of one to 6 years; and Level 6 felony counts carry penalties of six months to 2½ years.

Humphries’ case is filed in Hancock Circuit Court. He was arrested late last week and pleaded not guilty to the charges he faces, records show.

He is expected to appear in court again in March, and a tentative jury trial date has been set for June, records show.
