Elkhart man already in prison for drug dealing may get more time tacked on


He’s already convicted of dealing drugs while carrying a gun and now, he’s back in Elkhart County to learn if he’s going to get more time in prison.

Roman Olvera, 30, arrived at the Elkhart County Correctional Facility on Thursday from federal prison. He’s facing two methamphetamine dealing charges, each a level 3 and level 4 felony, according to the Elkhart Truth.

When he was arrested in February, police said Olvera had about 114 grams of meth at the time. However, he was tried this year on different charges. He was convicted of distributing heroin and marijuana while carrying a gun so he could protect himself from being robbed. In July, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison plus four years supervised release.

He could add five to 28 years in prison to his term if he’s convicted. His trial date has been set for Feb. 20, 2017.
