An eight-count indictment was filed charging an Akron man with possession and distribution of heroin, carfentanil, furanyl fentanyl and other drugs, according to David A. Sierleja, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Glen Sheffield, 32, was arrested May 3 and found to possess more than a kilogram each of methamphetamine and cocaine, as well as nearly 400 grams of heroin, 107 grams of carfentanil, 2 grams of furanyl fentanyl and 107 grams of a substance containing both carfentanil and furanyl fentanyl, according to the indictment.

Sierleja said Sheffield also possessed a Sturm Ruger semi-automatic 9 mm handgun, a Springfield Armory D9 semi-automatic handgun, a Sig Sauer semiautomatic handgun, and ammunition, despite prior felony convictions for possession of heroin and cocaine in the Summit County Court of Common Pleas, according to the indictment.

These firearms were used in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, according to the indictment.
