ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — A former Anderson County sheriff’s deputy is facing charges including drug distribution.

The State Law Enforcement Division says 31-year-old Mark Alan Miller was arrested Monday and charged with misconduct in office and distribution of a control substance.

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.
