ROCHESTER, Minn. – An accused heroin dealer is going to prison.

Darnell Brown, 44 of Rochester, was arrested on August 29, 2017, after officers of the Criminal Interdiction Unit, the Prolific Offender Unit, and the Community Action Team searched two vehicles and two homes associated with Brown. Rochester police say they found heroin, marijuana, and a large amount of cash.

Charges connected to those searches have been dismissed, however, as part of a deal where Brown pleads guilty to a drug deal he did on August 23, 2017. He pleaded guilty to 2nd degree sale of drugs for selling three grams of heroin to a confidential informant.

On Wednesday, Brown was sentenced to five years and seven months in state prison, with credit for 233 days already served.
