RICHMOND, Va. – A Midlothian man was sentenced today to 5 years in prison for possessing a fentanyl and heroin mixture in addition to unlawfully possessing a firearm.
According to court documents, on July 20, 2023, Allen C. Clack, 43, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute more than 40 grams of a mixture containing both fentanyl and heroin and to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. In the summer of 2022, law enforcement agents conducted an investigation of Clack’s drug trafficking activities in and around the City of Richmond.
