PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — Nathaniel Abraham was arraigned Saturday morning after being arrested for allegedly selling drugs in Pontiac.

The 33-year-old was arraigned from the Oakland County Jail on five counts of delivering methamphetamine and one count of maintaining a drug house.

A District Court judge set bond at $100,000 with the condition that Abraham wear a tether if released.

His attorney said Abraham allegedly sold the drugs to an undercover police officer. Police say an undercover officer purchased heroin and meth from Abraham on several different occasions during the investigation.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Department says Abraham was arrested at a home in the 200 block of Warwick in Pontiac as part of an investigation that began in early February 2019.

Officers conducted surveillance on the home during their investigation and took Abraham into custody during the execution of two search warrants on two homes on Warwick. They recovered meth, approximately $3,000 in cash, digital scales and documents during the search.

Abraham was convicted of murder when he was 11-years-old for using a stolen rifle to kill 18-year-old Ronnie Greene in Pontiac.

He was charged back in August for indecent exposure. During his arrest, he allegedly assaulted a deputy.
