Man pleads to drug, larceny charges

A 30-year-old South Boston man, Lamont Bee Miller, will spend an effective three years and 11 months in prison after pleading guilty Thursday in Halifax County Circuit Court to 10 charges.

Miller pleaded guilty to four counts of possession with intent to distribute an imitation controlled substance, one count of possession of cocaine and one count of enhanced petty larceny, all felonies.

In addition, the defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to distribute less than one-half ounce of marijuana and three counts of trespassing, all misdemeanors, in addition to a single probation violation.

Pursuant to a plea agreement with the commonwealth, the court sentenced Miller to five years in prison for each of the felonies and 12 months in jail for each of the misdemeanors, with all suspended but three years and 11 months, conditioned on Miller’s good behavior for 30 years.

The court revoked Miller’s previously suspended prison sentence for the probation violation but re-suspended any additional jail time for that charge.

The court ordered Miller placed on probation for one year, ordered him to pay $90 restitution to Virginia State Police and ordered him not to go on the property of Valero’s in South Boston.

Miller’s operator’s license was suspended for three years and six months, according to the plea agreement.
