A Vicksburg man accused of selling cocaine was in jail this morning.

Sam Stampley, 30, 2215 Pearl St., was charged with two counts of sale of cocaine at 10 a.m. Monday, police Capt. Bobby Stewart said.

Stampley was already in the Warren County Jail on burglary and grand larceny when the drug charges were added, Stewart said.
