Prosecutors say a Reynoldsburg man has been sentenced following one of the largest heroin seizures in Fairfield County history.

Samuel Granados, 32, was sentenced to six years in prison. Due to the severity of his offense, Granados is not eligible for early release.

Police said that Granados was apprehended on Aug. 30 with 76 grams of heroin concealed in a caulking tube. He was delivering the drugs to a residence in Pickerington.

Authorities said the heroin was enough for more than 700 individual doses.

Granados' co-defendant, Victor Tovar, has already been sentenced to 30 months in prison for his role in the crime.
