ANDERSON, SOUTH CAROLINA – A former Anderson County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Monday and booked at the Anderson County Detention Center.
Mark Alan Miller, 31, faces misconduct in office and distribution of a controlled substance charges, according to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.
Earlier this summer, authorities say Miller conspired to distribute or buy hydrocodone, which is a controlled substance. Warrants say he intended to purchase or distribute the drug from his Anderson home.
It wasn’t immediately known if Miller had an attorney.
Miller is the second Anderson County deputy to face drug charges in less than two weeks. Earlier this month, SLED said Ronald Shane Thompson turned himself in on a charge of illegally possessing hydrocodone after the drug was found in his patrol car.
