Court records indicate that Miller provided 2.39 grams, or less than 1 ounce, of suspected meth to a police informant in April in the 300 block of West 25th Street. The alleged transaction happened 652 feet north of Central Elementary School at 300 W. 24th St., according to records.

Records indicate Miller bought the drugs from Martin. Then, Miller allegedly sold drugs to a police informant.

Martin is scheduled to appear in court in August, while Miller has a hearing later this month.
