HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Federal agents say a man who was trafficking heroin is now off the streets.

A federal affidavit reveals that Terrell Hargrove met up with a confidential informant in front of the Auto Zone on Chamberlayne Avenue and went inside to swap heroin for cash.

There's nothing to indicate employees knew what was going down and the informant confirmed the heroin sale.

Hargrove was later arrested in Henrico County.

The federal affidavit says Hargrove was known to traffic heroin.

In a search of his home, DEA agents found a bag of marijuana, multi-colored pills, a .40 caliber and 9 mm pistol.

He is being held at Richmond City jail without bond.
