Well, this is a shocker…not.
MUNCIE – The president of the local chapter of the NAACP was arrested Wednesday, accused of selling cocaine for a third time to an informant for the Delaware County Sheriff’s Drug Unit.
Timothy Wade Miles, 49, is also assistant director of transportation for MITS, and police reports indicate he was in a vehicle owned by the local bus service when he sold the cocaine. One of the transactions occurred in Westside Park as children played nearby, authorities said.
The third alleged cocaine deal this month between Miles and the informant took place early Wednesday evening in downtown Muncie.
Miles was then arrested in a traffic stop near MITS headquarters on East Seymour Street. A deputy reported Miles begged him not to arrest him, saying, “My career and life is over.”
The MITS official also reportedly asked the deputy to remove his handcuffs so employees of the bus service would not realize that he was in custody.
