A Buffalo man was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison for dealing heroin from his home, officials said.
Eric Mitchell, 25, was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision, by Erie County Court Judge Sheila DiTullio, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.
In May, Mitchell pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, for dealing heroin out of his home, the DA's Office said.
Last July, narcotics officers from the Buffalo and Lackawanna police departments raided Mitchell's residence and seized about an ounce of heroin mixed with fentanyl, according to the DA's Office. The officers also recovered two digital scales with heroin residue on them, officials said.
Assistant Erie County District Attorney James W. Mansour II of the office’s narcotics bureau prosecuted the case.
