Police: Man traded cocaine for Apple products

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - Bellingham police say a computer repairman traded cocaine for Apple products.

The Bellingham Herald reports that the 36-year-old repairman sold small amounts of the drug to an undercover detective three times in the past month. He was arrested Friday.

Bellingham Police Sgt. Keith Johnson says police had taken several drug-related complaints about the repair shop earlier in the year. So over the course of about four months, a detective built up business rapport with the man by selling him iPods and iPhones for resale.

The man hasn't been formally charged by county prosecutors.
