Mandeville Man Pleads Guilty To Heroin Possession
COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Mark H. Anglin, Jr., 34, of Mandeville, pleaded guilty Tuesday (April 30) to possession of heroin. District Judge Scott Gardner sentenced Anglin as a multiple offender to 30 years in prison.
Anglin’s prior felony convictions include third offense DWI, aggravated battery, and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling. He also faces an armed robbery charge that is set for trial in June.
The heroin charge stems from a traffic stop on August 17, 2018, when a St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s deputy discovered an active warrant for Anglin’s arrest in connection to an armed robbery that occurred on June 25, 2018. In that case, Anglin is accused of robbing a victim of about $1,000 in cash and a mobile phone at gunpoint. A police investigation also revealed that Anglin has possible gang ties.
While searching Anglin during the traffic stop, the officer found a bag of heroin in Anglin’s pocket and other drug paraphernalia.
Assistant District Attorney Jay Adair prosecuted the case. The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office investigated it.
