Detroit Man Pleads Guilty to Huntingtonn Heroin Distribution
Harris was attempting to flush about an ounce of heroin down the toilet when police entered the house. Police also used a confidential informant to buy prescription pills from Harris on three separate occasions in 2012. Harris faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a $1 million fine when he is sentenced on September 2, 2014. United States District Court Chief Judge Robert C. Chambers presided over the hearing.
This case is being prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs and heroin. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
