Sheriff's deputies arrested a Madison man Monday after an investigation into dealing methamphetamine.
Michael R. Scarff, 30, was arrested on two charges of dealing meth, a Class A felony, and a charge of possession of marijuana.
The meth charges stem from an investigation by Capt. Det. Keith Hartman in November. According to a probable cause affidavit from the incident, Scarff sold meth to a police informant on two days.
The first, according to court records, was within 1,000 feet of John Paul Park. The second sale was within 1,000 feet of O.V.O. Headstart, court records indicate.
According to Hartman's affidavit, Scarff sold a half gram of meth for $60 during the first deal. The amount of meth and the amount of currency used in the alleged second deal is not revealed in court records.
Both substances field-tested positive for meth, police said. At the time of Scarff's arrest, officers found him to be in possession of marijuana, according to police.
Scarff is being held on a $50,000 bond.
