By Submitted Report | Posted in: Crime and Police News

A McKeesport man has been indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with illegally selling heroin and a powerful painkiller that led to an overdose death.

Henry "Bundles" Little-Proctor, 26, is charged with conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl and possession with intent to deliver, U.S. Attorney David Hickton announced today in Pittsburgh.

The five-count indictment charges Little with distributing heroin and fentanyl, a painkiller 80 times more powerful than morphine, from October 2015 to July 2016, a spokeswoman for Hickton said.

In addition, the indictment further alleges that on July 13, Little-Proctor sold fentanyl that resulted in an overdose death, and further accuses Little-Proctor of illegal possession of .233 and .22 caliber ammunition.

Little-Proctor is not allowed to possess weapons or ammunition because of previous felony convictions for heroin distribution, Hickton's office said.
