CHALMETTE, LA (WVUE) - A man caught in Chalmette last year with the largest amount of heroin ever seized in St. Bernard Parish, received a 25-year prison sentence Monday.
Alvin Clay, 29, had 8.3 ounces of heroin worth more than $100,000 on the streets, Sheriff James Pohlmann said at the time of the arrest in March 2015.
Clay was sentenced without possibility of parole or suspension on Monday after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin. The judge gave him the sentence under a deal in which he was prosecuted as a repeat offender.
The St. Bernard Sheriff's Office says Clay has a lengthy criminal history that includes 30 months spent in prison for drugs and weapons in a New Orleans conviction.
Clay just moved into Chalmette prior to his arrest by the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office.
