A Buffalo man faces a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison after a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging him with distributing heroin and possession with intent to distribute a mixture of heroin and fentanyl, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Jawayne Watkins, 29, allegedly sold $1,500 worth of heroin in July to an undercover officer, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Adler.
Watkins allegedly made a second sale that contained a mixture of heroin and fentanyl in November, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
Watkins was on parole at the time of his November arrest, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
The indictment was the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations and the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.
