Man admits he was in possession of 345 grams of heroin.


By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART – A 20-year-old Shelby man faces a prison term of 20 months to 20 years after pleading guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, March 9, to possession with intent to deliver 50-449 grams of heroin.

Steve Olvera, of 98 Sessions Rd., testified before Judge Robert D. Springstead that he was in possession of 345 grams of heroin Aug. 7, 2019 in Grant Township.

“It was in my car,” Olvera said. “I was driving.”

“Did you transport this heroin from one location to another?” Judge Springstead asked “Yes,” Olvera said. The heroin belonged to someone else, but he knew it was in his car, he said.

The maximum penalty for delivery/manufacture of a narcotic/cocaine 50-449 grams is 20 years in prison.

Olvera was arrested by the State, Sheriffs Chiefs Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT), according to his court file.

Judge Sprinstead said he would not object to Olvera being placed in Special Alternative Incarceration (SAI) or “boot camp.”

Another charge of false report of a felony is being dismissed in exchange for his plea.

Sentencing is set for May 4 at 8:30 a.m.
