2 more surrender in Ala. heroin investigation
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say an accused heroin dealer whose drugs were linked to a man's fatal overdose has surrendered to authorities.
Officials said Wednesday that 31-year-old Harold Donnell Mims, of Birmingham, turned himself in as local and federal authorities work to round up accused heroin dealers in northern Alabama.
Investigators say heroin Mims is accused of selling in late February was linked to the death of a 28-year-old man who was found unresponsive at a Tuscaloosa apartment complex.
A 20-year-old University of Alabama student suffered a fatal overdose at the same complex, and authorities say his drugs came from a different dealer.
Another man, 34-year-old Terrance Johnson, has also surrendered. It's unclear if either man has an attorney.
Officials say 42 of 49 suspects targeted in the investigation have been arrested.
