A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging a Buffalo man on fentanyl and heroin charges, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Shawn Woods, 25, was arraigned Thursday on the charges before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kenneth Schroeder. Woods was charged with possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, butyryl fentanyl, furanyl fentanuyl, and heroin. The other charges against him include maintaining a drug involved premises, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking activity. If convicted, Woods faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum 40 years imprisonment.
Woods was found in February in possession of large quantities of fentanyl, butyryl fentanyl, furanyl fentanuyl, and heroin intended for distribution in the Buffalo area, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
