STUART, Fla. (CBS12) — A man from Broward County is facing drug charges and the possibility of deportation after deputies found cocaine hidden in his hair.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office arrested 25-year-old Chrismanuel Theophile during a controlled narcotics operation Wednesday night.

Deputies say he sold heroin to undercover detectives who also found cocaine embedded in his hair.

Theophile is facing charges of selling and distributing heroin and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.

The sheriff's office said Theophile often traveled between Broward County and Port St. Lucie. He's on an immigration hold for deportation back to Haiti as the sheriff's office says he's in the United States illegally.
