KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 37-year-old Kansas City man has been ordered to forfeit more than $800,000 that authorities say he made selling large amounts of heroin and methamphetamine.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1R9knVi ) reports that Eric Harris pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit drug trafficking, illegal possession of a firearm and money laundering Tuesday. Prosecutors say Harris conspired to distribute more than four pounds of heroin and 12 pounds of methamphetamine between February 2012 and September 2014.
Harris was arrested after fleeing from a police traffic stop. Prosecutors say drugs, $42,000 and seven firearms were found in his home during a search.
Harris must forfeit $840,000 in drug proceeds and his house. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later date.
