Following his arrest, they said they located the 10 grams in his butt and then obtained a warrant to search his home.

In addition to 85 grams of heroin, they also found a loaded semiautomatic handgun underneath his bed.

Coleman is charged with possession with intent to distribute and felony firearms.

In a release from U.S. District Court, officials say that Coleman admitted to selling heroin since the summer of 2013.
