An Albany man has admitted to possessing a large amount of heroin.

Jose Chuva was found with the heroin in April after police executed a search warrant at his home.

Police say the drugs included 150 glassine bags that weight 4.5 grams.

Chuva was also spotted selling heroin on three separate occasions.

He faces up to 6 ½ years in prison when he is sentenced next month.
