Jury finds Chicago man guilty of selling heroin

A St. Louis County jury needed only an hour of deliberation on Tuesday before finding a Chicago man guilty of possessing heroin with intent to sell on the Fond du Lac Indian Reservation, St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin said.

Antonio Darrell Holmes, 29, was convicted of first-degree possession of heroin and a first-degree sale of the drug.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant St. Louis County Attorney Nathaniel Stumme, who said Holmes was found to be in possession of 90 grams of heroin with a street value of more than $10,000 when stopped by Fond du Lac police on Feb. 20, 2015.

The defendant was also in possession of $2,590 in cash when taken into custody.

Judge Sally Tarnowski scheduled sentencing for May 2.
