Octavius White pleads guilty

United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced that Octavius White, 26, of Many, Louisiana, pled guilty today before U.S. Magistrate Mark L. Hornsby, to possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

On November 16, 2016, officers with the Many Police Department arrested Octavius White on outstanding warrants. When the officers approached the vehicle where White was sitting in the passenger seat, they notified him of the warrants and placed him under arrest. Officers found ten individually wrapped smaller bags of a white rock powder-like substance, five individually wrapped smaller bags of marijuana, $373 in cash, and a digital scale in White’s pockets. Also, during a search of the vehicle officers retrieved a loaded 9mm XD-9 Springfield Armory pistol from under the seat where White was sitting. The white rock powder-like substance was tested and determined to be 19.03 grams of a mixture containing methamphetamine; the suspected marijuana was confirmed to be 11.97 grams.

White faces up to five years in prison, up to five years of supervised release, a $250,000 fine, as well as forfeiture of the firearm related to this offense.
