FAIRFAX CO., VA – Police have arrested an alleged heroin dealer, “Nephew”, after a long term investigation of the distribution of heroin in Fairfax County.

“Nephew” was identified as Clarence Dickerson, a 39-year-old, black male from Southeast DC. Police say Dickerson allegedly sold heroin in several areas of Fairfax County.

Dickerson was stopped and arrested at an Exxon Gas Station in Reston on Wednesday. A subsequent search of his vehicle revealed heroin, crack cocaine, scales, packaging material and other items commonly used in the distribution of illegal narcotics. Officials also seized a 9 mm handgun and an undisclosed amount of money.

Dickerson was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where he was served five warrants for distribution of heroin. Two additional warrants were served for possession with the intent to distribute cocaine and heroin.

He is currently being held on no bond. Additional charges are being considered, including federal charges.
