A Greenwood man has been charged with distributing heroin after he reportedly sold a quantity of the drug to a confidential informant.
Michael Chad Cogdill, 30, was arrested last Friday after agents with the Greenwood County Drug Enforcement Unit served a warrant for distribution of heroin on Cogdill at his residence.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, DEU agents met with a confidential informant on April 30 and provided the informant with the cash to purchase to the drug. The informant was searched and determined not to have any contraband or money on him before he met Cogdill. The informant then met with Cogdill at an undisclosed location in Greenwood County to purchase the heroin.
According to the report, the informant returned with two small bags of a brownish-gray powder-like substance which later field tested positive for heroin. One bag contained .17 grams of the drug and the other bag contained .21 grams.
