A Pittsburgh man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison for dealing heroin in West Virginia, which has one of the nation's highest heroin overdose rates.
Damon Rashad Reese, 26, known as "Mac," was sentenced earlier this month to 140 months behind bars. He was indicted by a federal grand jury last year on charges of supplying large amounts of heroin to users in Wetzel County.
State police said he was the source for two people from New Martinsville, W.Va., who bought heroin from him and then distributed it in the region.
In addition to the prison term, Mr. Reese was ordered to forfeit more than $8,000 in drug proceeds and his Lexus car.
