Muncie NAACP chapter president arrested on charges of dealing cocaine

MUNCIE -- The president of the Muncie chapter of the NAACP was arrested Wednesday on multiple charges of dealing cocaine.

Timothy Miles, 49, of Muncie, is accused of selling a total of 1 gram of cocaine on three different occasions to a confidential informant of the Delaware County Sheriff's Department.

A probable cause affidavit released Thursday accuses Miles, who is the assistant director for the Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS), of selling  cocaine to the police informant while in his MITS uniform and driving his MITS vehicle.

The affidavit also claims Miles attempted to solicit sexual favors in exchange for the cocaine.

During one buy, police said Miles identified himself as the president of the Muncie NAACP chapter.

"I'm the president of that," Miles told the informant. "It's crazy."

On Wednesday, police allegedly arranged the third buy with Miles at the Muncie Civic Center, located at 216 E. Main St. in downtown Muncie.

At that point, Miles was arrested. Police said during the arrest Miles claimed that he was "a user, not a dealer."

"I'm begging you, please don't arrest me, my career and life is over," Miles reportedly told police.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Miles made a full confession at the sheriff's department, saying that he has a lot of child support and he had decided to sell cocaine to offset the cost.

Miles allegedly told police he usually purchases an ounce of cocaine for $1,250 and doubles his profit. He also said he had recently purchased 3 ounces of cocaine.

Deputies attempted to locate the remaining 2 ounces of cocaine at Miles' house, but said they believed they had already been disposed of.
