Raleigh men arrested on cocaine charges


— An undercover officer arrested two Raleigh men Thursday who are being accused of trying to sell two kilograms of cocaine to the officer.

Authorities charged Clifton James Ferrell, 21, and Michael David Spina, 32, with conspiracy to traffick cocaine. According to both arrest warrants, the men attempted to sell the cocaine to an investigator from the Wake County Sheriff's Department.

The men did not possess the cocaine they were trying to sell, and were not charged with possession, according to Phyllis Stephens, spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office. The value of the amount they were conspiring to sell totals about $200,000, she said.
