PITTSBURGH – An Allegheny County resident has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The two-count indictment named Michael Mills-Allen, 29, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on or about Dec. 12, 2015, the defendant possessed with intent to distribute a quantity of heroin and 28 grams or more of crack.

The law provides for a maximum sentence of not less than five years and up to 40 years in prison, a fine of $5,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history of the defendant.
