Police say it's the first case they've seen in years.

EL DORADO, AR. – An El Dorado man has been arrested for several drug-related charges, including possession of Black-tar heroine. 

Patrick David Antoon Jr, 31, was arrested on various charges. He is being held on a $100,000 cash only bond in Union County.

A police task force raided the residence, at 2501 Forest Lawn in El Dorado on Friday after receiving information that a shipment of heroin had arrived in El Dorado.

The Charges include:

-2 possessions of controlled substances of methamphetamine, with intent to deliver

-Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon

-Possession of drug paraphernalia

Black-tar Heroin, which is a highly addictive form of heroin, is derived from morphine and has a tar-like texture, hence the name. Police say it comes manly from Latin America, which makes it much cheaper to produce. 

Captain Kevin Holt of the El Dorado Police Department says this is the first time they’ve seen the substance in a long time, but they recognize that it’s becoming more popular across the south.
