Two Jefferson City men have been charged with selling cocaine in or near public housing units from April though June.
Arenzo Borden, 23, 1624 Jefferson St., is charged with one count of distribution of a controlled substance near public housing and two counts of distribution of a controlled substance. Devonte Borden, 24, 208 Manilla, is also charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance near public housing.
A confidential informant purchased crack cocaine on three separate occasions from Arenzo and Devonte at 10 Jackson St., which is an apartment building owned by the Jefferson City Housing Authority, according to police probable cause statements.
As of Friday afternoon, both men were being held in the Cole County Jail on $150,000 bond each because they are considered flight risks due to their extensive family ties from the Chicago area.
