Superior Court Judge sentenced a 21-year-old Atlantic City man to five years in prison on Friday for unlawful possession of a weapon in connection with a 2010 incident in the Carver Hall Apartments in Atlantic City, Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel stated.
In accordance with a plea agreement, Kevan Anderson must serve one year before becoming eligible for parole. On April 22, 2010, Atlantic City police responded to an apartment as a result of a report of armed men selling drugs. When the police entered the apartment they discovered Anderson hiding in a utility room with a .38-caliber revolver nearby. Additional guns and drugs were located in other rooms of the apartment. Anderson’s co-defendant, Kenya Mason, the tenant of the apartment, was sentenced in March for possession with intent to distribute heroin. Another co-defendant, Omar Drinks, is pending sentencing on related firearms and drug offenses from the incident, according to Assistant Prosecutor Curt Baker, who represented the state.
