A convicted felon is facing more than seven years in federal prison, on drug possession charges.

Rodney Matthews admitted that he had more than 300 grams of cocaine and almost 100 grams of heroin in his Albany apartment, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

He also had almost $12,000, which the attorney’s office says he made from drug trafficking.

Matthews also admitted he had a ghost gun to guard his drugs.
He was initially arrested after police say he fired that gun into a telephone pole outside his apartment.
