A local man has been accused of selling one gram of heroin for $50.

Alfred Latrell Jackson, 23, was charged on Nov. 26 with controlled-substance violation.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, on Sept. 14, 2011, the Iowa City police Street Crimes Unit utilized a confidential informant to purchase one gram of heroin from a person known as “Lil Buddy” in exchange for $50, the complaint said.

The confidential informant showed a photograph of the defendant and identified him as the person who sold the heroin to them. This was also confirmed through phone records, the complaint said.

The heroin purchase was later sent to the Street Crimes Lab and showed positive for the presence of heroin and methamphetamine for a combined total weight of 0.64 grams, the complaint said.

Controlled substance violation is a Class-C felony.
