JACKSONVILLE Fla. - A man in his twenties is facing multiple charges after he allegedly sold undercover detectives crack cocaine on multiple occasions.
An investigation that began September 8 came to a head Wednesday night when Khalaf Jamal Miller, 20, who goes by "Hardhead," deliberately crashed the stolen car he was driving into cars driven by undercover detectives, according to a police report from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Miller first met with undercover detectives over a month ago at a Red Roof Inn in the 6000 block of Youngerman Circle where he allegedly sold narcotics agents crack cocaine at. Three days later, on September 11, detectives arranged to buy more crack cocaine from Miller, who allegedly met up with undercover detectives at the Krystal's in the 5400 block of Blanding Boulevard, the report detailed.

Detectives approached the car Miller was in to make an arrest and Miller allegedly crashed the stolen car into cars driven by undercover detectives. Miller also hit two parked cars and an officer as he attempted to flee the scene, before crashing into a tree in the CVS parking lot.
