LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Mount Morris man pled guilty and went into custody on Tuesday for drug charges and Tampering with Physical Evidence following his arrest by Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies in January.
Anthony Valazquez, 27, pled guilty to Attempted Tampering with Physical Evidence and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree, both A misdemeanors, agreeing to be incarcerated without bail at the Livingston County Jail awaiting an anticipated sentence of one year.
Valazquez was found to be in possession of 40 bags of heroin, which he tried to throw into a ditch at the traffic stop.
The anticipated sentence will be one year for each charge, to be served concurrently, or at the same time.
The driver of the vehicle which was pulled over was Cain Cox, 25, of Dalton, who was rearrested for Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in April when he apparently tried to help Trevin Kelley, 22, escape the scene after he robbed his own grandmother at the Mount Morris Apple/Qwik Fill.
Valazquez will be back in court on July 21 for sentencing.
