Higgins Man Sentenced To Prison

He admitted to trying to sell enough cyanide to "kill a small city" in his words. Now, a Higgins man is headed to federal prison. Jeffrey Detrixhe was sentenced Wednesday to serve close to six years in prison. Detrixhe pleaded guilty to one count of prohibition against chemical weapons.

He was arrested after federal agents say Detrixhe was attempting to sell cyanide online. F.B.I agents say, Detrixhe admitted that he knew from his friend, that a man  wanting to buy the cyanide was with the Aryan Brotherhood.

The F.B.I says, they confiscated a barrel containing more than 60-pounds of cyanide from Detrixhe's home in Higgins back in May.
