AUSTIN, Minn. – Authorities say a drug sting has caught a man selling heroin.

Anthony Bynum, 52 of Austin, was arrested Monday and is being held in the Mower County Jail for a probation violation. Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger says a confidential informant paid Bynum $100 on Monday for ½ gram of heroin.

Krueger says the buy took place near Galloway Park as part of a joint investigation by Austin police and the Mower County Sheriff’s Office.

A search of Bynum’s home in the 1000 block of 2nd Avenue Southwest reportedly found three grams of cocaine and three grams of heroin, as well as the money used in the drug sting.

Online court records show Bynum had three previous drug convictions in Mower County.
