Three men were arrested Monday following a cocaine deal in Sunrise.

Jeremiah Lamar Cornish, 34, of Pompano Beach; Tice Laray Love, 31, of Miramar; and Robert Lee Vaughn, 34, of Fort Lauderdale, are charged with trafficking in cocaine and conspiracy to traffic cocaine.

Sunrise police arranged a meeting between a person working with police and Vaughn after a tipster told police that Vaughn had been dealing cocaine, according to a complaint affidavit. Vaughn agreed to exchange an ounce of powder cocaine for $1,200 and $40 worth of crack cocaine.

Cornish drove Love and Vaughn to the agreed-upon location in the 7700 block of West Oakland Park Boulevard. Police observed as Vaughn exchanged drugs for money, according to the affidavit.

Following the deal, the three were arrested. A search of the car yielded three bags of varying amounts of cocaine, according to the affidavit.

Cornish and Vaughn are also facing charges of driving without a license, and possession of crack cocaine and delivery of cocaine, respectively.

Vaughn remained in jail Tuesday afternoon on a $31,500 bond. Cornish and Love are being held without bond pending trial.
