NASHUA — An alleged drug dealer has been arrested, accused of selling crack cocaine to a police informant at least twice in the city.

Randy Smith, 54, of 389 Belmont St., Apt. 1, Manchester, allegedly sold $180 worth of crack cocaine on April 16 to an informant, according to court documents.

A second drug transaction allegedly took place April 23 between Smith and the same informant, according to court records.

Smith has an extensive drug-related arrest record dating to the early 1980s, according to a police affidavit filed by Nashua Det. Clark Gaphardt.

He was arrested on Thursday and charged with three felony counts of the unlawful sale of a narcotic drug, second offense.

During his arraignment on Friday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division, Smith’s bail was reduced from $100,000 cash bail to $5,000 cash, according to court documents.
