LIMA — The 4.4 pounds of heroin a man brought into this community was the highest amount ever confiscated and could have had a devastating effect on the community, a prosecutor said Monday.
“That is over 20,000 chances for the ultimate users to poison themselves with this dangerous and sometimes deadly drug,” Assistant Allen County Prosecutor Jana Emerick said.
Emerick spoke during the sentencing hearing for 45-year-old Marvin Thomas who was given 23 years in prison. Thomas declined to make a statement.
