They are interested in the dealers. Here I doubt that you will be arrested or charged or he would not have told you about being a CI. Simply having the drugs is a crime. If you were involved in multiple deals with multiple partys then you could be charged with trafficking. It is not unusual after the initial arrest for the police to come back in about six months and set up to try and catch him again. Now that he is on their radar I would avoid any involvment with drugs since you may also be on their radar.
does the deal have to be hand to hand? since i got the money then went out and searched for drugs wouldn't that be grounds for entrapment?
