Police disrupted a drug deal and arrested a man accused of selling $200 worth of methamphetamine on March 30, according to an affidavit for arrest.

Robert Manuel Rodriguez was arraigned on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance in an amount of 4 grams or more, but less than 200 grams on Wednesday by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

Officers watched a deal take place in which 6.6 grams of suspected methamphetamine was obtained. Police tested the substance with a field kit, according to the affidavit.

An officer was able to get a photo of Rodriguez, and positively identify him, according to the affidavit.

Rodriguez was held in Bell County Jail on $50,000 bond by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke. Rodriguez later bonded out.
