HUNTINGTON - A Milton man faces two decades in federal prison after admitted Monday he sold more than 400 grams of heroin in the Milton area earlier this year.

Jeremy A. Kinder, 39, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin in federal court Monday. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison at his March 18, 2019, sentencing.

According to U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart, investigators executed a search warrant April 4 at Kinder’s home in the 1100 block of Amos Street in Milton. Investigators found 29 grams of heroin in his pocket during the raid, at which time he was arrested. Inside the home officers found more than $6,600 in cash and digital scales used to weigh heroin.

The drug was tested by the state crime lab, where it was found the heroin was mixed with fentanyl.

Kinder admitted in court he had intended to sell the heroin in the Milton area. He also admitted he had been distributing the drug in the Milton area for the four months previous to his arrest. He said he had sold more than 400 grams of the drug in that time.
