A 51-year-old Hailey man has been charged with two felony counts of delivery of cocaine for allegedly selling drugs more than a year ago to a confidential informant for the Blaine County Narcotics Enforcement Team.

Ketchum Police Chief Steve Harkins, who also serves as director of the Narcotics Enforcement Team, said Wednesday that Robert Jeffrey Farrow voluntarily surrendered on Monday evening at the Blaine County Sheriff's Office following issuance of a warrant for his arrest.

Farrow was formally charged with the crimes Tuesday at an initial appearance in Blaine County Magistrate Court. According to court records, Farrow has hired Hailey attorney Fritz Haemmerle as legal counsel. A preliminary hearing was set for Nov. 8.

Farrow was released from jail later Tuesday after posting $10,000 bond.

Harkins alleged that Farrow sold a total of seven grams of cocaine to a confidential informant in separate drug sales on Sept. 15, 2010, and Sept. 29, 2010.
