An Independence man is facing federal charges for allegedly selling nearly a half pound of heroin to an undercover agent.
Ronald Seagal Washington, 25, is charged in U.S. District Court in Kansas City with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.
According to court documents, an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made 11 heroin purchases from Washington between over a six-month period this year.
The drugs sold totaled nearly 200 grams, according to the documents.
