He was also arrested that month after police stopped a vehicle in which he was passenger in the 800 block of Park Avenue.

The driver told police he had been trying to purchase a bundle of heroin for $70 from the passenger, according to an affidavit.

Sims was charged with counts of delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver and possession.

He faces a minimum of 84 months in prison.

His sentencing is set for 9 a.m. Aug. 20 in county court.
