Man charged with selling meth to undercover informant

A Menahga man was charged with selling meth repeatedly to an undercover informant.

According to court documents, Bradley Dean Kangas, 48, met eight times with an undercover informant and sold the informant a substance later field-tested by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and found to be methamphetamine.

During one of the meetings, drugs were observed but not actually sold, investigators said, because there was an argument over money.

A total of 2 grams of meth was sold between March 5 and June 6, 2010, investigators said, and a total of $800 changed hands.

Kangas has a previous conviction for sale of a second-degree controlled substance crime from May 2006.

He now faces a charge of third-degree sale of a narcotic. His first court appearance on that charge was set for Dec. 19.
