An East St. Louis man was indicted last month on charges of distributing heroin and fentanyl.
Kurt L. Richardson was federally indicted June 22 on two counts distribution of a controlled substance — one for heroin and the other for fentanyl. The indictment alleges the heroin offense occurred May 21, 2020, and the fentanyl offense took place on Aug. 7.
Federal court database Pacer says Richardson was arrested June 30 — he pleaded not guilty that day. Richardson was released on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear for a 9 a.m. jury trial Aug. 30.
