A Cedar Rapids man who distributed heroin in the Cedar Rapids area was sentenced to more than four years in federal prison. 

Isaac Edwards, 27, from Cedar Rapids received the prison term after a guilty plea to one count of distribution of heroin. 

In the plea agreement, Edwards admitted that he sold heroin from 2012 until the date of his arrest in 2015. He also admitted to leading police on a vehicle chase on September 22, 2015 and throwing heroin out of the vehicle during the pursuit. 

Edwards was sentenced to 57 months imprisonment concurrent with an Illinois drug sentence. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system. 

Edwards is being held in the United States Marshal's custody and will be returned to the Illinois Department of Corrections to complete his Illinois drug sentence.
