DECATUR — Police arrested a 27-year-old Decatur man after detectives said they observed him engaging in what appeared to be multiple drug transactions from the front porch of a house in the 400 block of West Leafland Avenue. 

The man was being held in the Macon County Jail on Friday on preliminary charges of possessing 1 to 15 grams of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and possession of ammunition by a felon. 

Preliminary charges are subject to review by the Macon County State's Attorney's Office. The man's bond has been set at $50,000. 

A signed affidavit said members of the Decatur/Macon County Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at the home on Leafland on Thursday. The man was on the porch as officers carried out the search warrant, the affidavit said.

Inside the house, officers found two small bags with about 1.7 grams of a substance that field-tested positive for cocaine, the affidavit said. Two digital scales and one live .45-caliber round of ammunition inside were also found, the affidavit said.
