An undocumented man who had cocaine embedded in his hair and was dealing heroin is under arrest in Martin County, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators say they busted 25-year old Chrismanuel Theophile after a month-long narcotics operation.

Theophile, who lives in Broward County and often stayed in St. Lucie County, has a long criminal history, the sheriff's office said.

He faces 13 felony counts related to the sale and distribution of heroin and unlawful use of a two-way communication.

His bond was set at more than $150,000.

The sheriff's office says he is eligible to be deported to his homeland of Haiti.
