Man sentenced in local heroin scheme
HUNTINGTON — A man with ties to Detroit was sentenced to federal prison Monday in a case that involves heroin shipped to Huntington via the U.S. Postal Service.
Rodney Lee Flowers, 48, received a 3-year prison sentence. It stems from a September guilty plea to the charge of attempting to possess at least 100 grams of heroin with intent to distribute.
The case involved a heroin shipment initially bound for Washington Avenue, but intercepted April 3 by authorities at Huntington’s main post office, according to documents filed in the case.
The package contained a half pound of heroin.
