Investigators in Boynton Beach say a suspected drug dealer tried to sell heroin to undercover officers, even offering to throw in a bag for free.

The investigation began as detectives tracked down a man accused of supplying heroin to a victim who recently overdosed.

Detectives, working with few clues such as a man with "short hair and ugly," eventually came up with a name of Marquis Lazeria Bonner, a 20-year-old felon.

Undercover police arranged a meeting with Bonner at a Walmart on South Federal Highway. According to Boynton Beach police, Bonner offered to sell five bags of heroin for $100 to the officers and offered a sixth bag for free.

Police arrested Bonner on the spot. Officers found six small bags containing a brown powder which appeared to be heroin and two syringes.

Police found seeds believed to be marijuana seeds on the floor board. The car also smelled of marijuana. According to the arrest report, officers also found eight bullets in the back seat. Bonner is a two-time convicted felon.

Bonner faces charges of attempted sale of heroin, possession of ammo by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a canceled driver's license.
