An investigation was conducted prior to the arrest in which an under-cover drug buy lead to information of Nichols selling heroin. During an interview at the PD, Nichols admitted to selling 90% of the heroin he purchased and using the rest, selling a minimum of 20 times over the last 5 months. Additional charges were filed on Nichols, who was already in police custody. Nichols was surprised to hear he was being charged for selling heroin after he admitted the above information.
