— A 44-year-old Raleigh man has been charged with trafficking cocaine in North Carolina, according to arrest warrants.

Gerald Allen Rolle, of 316-3 Cutler St., faces one count each of trafficking in cocaine by possession and trafficking in cocaine by transportation and two counts each of selling and delivering cocaine and possession with intent to sell and distribute cocaine.

The warrants state that Rolle was arrested when he tried to sell drugs to an undercover agent. He was carrying 28 grams of cocaine at the time, according to documents.

He was placed in the Wake County jail under a $2 million secured bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

Rolle served 12 years in prison after being convicted of drug trafficking and being a habitual felon, according to state Department of Correction records. He was released in 2005.
