A suspected heroin dealer who was arrested in connection with the Philip Seymour Hoffman drug investigation appeared in court Friday.
Robert Vineberg was picked up after police followed leads into Hoffman's apparent heroin overdose on February 2.
The 57-year-old musician was one of four people taken into custody during a raid on a Greenwich Village apartment.
Vineberg is charged with possessing heroin with the intent to sell.
In court, Vineberg's defense lawyer said his client has a "10-bag-a-day" heroin addiction, and that much of the heroin allegedly found in his apartment was for his own use.
It remains unclear if Vineberg will face charges in connection to Hoffman's death.
