    3 years in jail for Tinmouth dealer

    A Tinmouth man who pleaded guilty to selling heroin in Rutland County was sentenced Monday by a federal judge to 37 months in jail.

    Alan H. Willis, 41, pleaded guilty in December to a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute heroin.

    He was sentenced in federal court in Rutland by Judge Christina Reiss, who ordered two years of supervised release upon completion of his jail term.

    Willis was arrested in February 2013 after police raided his home at 661 East Road in Tinmouth, where they found 1,500 bags of heroin worth $30,000 along with almost $5,000 in cash.

    Two months after his arrest, Willis was arrested again while out of jail on $200,000 bail. His second arrest took place in Rutland after city police found more than 100 bags of heroin on him during a traffic stop.
